Publication for Valentina Kotsuba

Valentina’s poem With the First Cockerel has been selected to be published in The Fabler magazine – a literary outlet founded by an expatriate living in Moscow.

The poem is part of the Flashbacks collection about her childhood memories, and hence features Russian cultural references. Childhood is one of the closest and dearest themes to the poet, upon which she embarked after reading Seamus Heaney.

Congratulations Valentina!
