Konstantin and I met in the first year of our DPhil program at the University of Oxford. We were both in the English department and we spent a good amount of time discussing one another’s work, commiserating over the difficulties of postgraduate life, and drinking at the pub. Often all at once. I am ever-appreciative for all our conversations and meetings, whether in Oxford, Cape Town, or Cyprus, throughout our friendship. I am honored to be a part of the scholarship team this year. Since completing my DPhil I have been living in Cyprus where I freelance for overseas publications, edit a poetry journal, and dabble in academia.
