This news is a bit delayed, but is nonetheless exciting. Kiki Petrosino, poet and 2004 MAPH graduate, published her first book of poetry, Ford Red Border, in 2009. Fort Red Border has been reviewed in The Believer and Rain Taxi, and was shortlisted for the Forward Book of the Year Award in Poetry. Most recently, the Poetry Foundation has honored Petrosino’s book by including it in a list of the top five small press books of poems. You can read the article here. Petrosino has also been profiled in Poets and Writers as part of the 2010 Dubut Poets Roundup. She currently teaches creative writing and literature at the University of Louisville.
