Emeric de Monteynard—Poet

translations_emeric_de_monteynard_2I had the great pleasure to meet French poet Emeric de Monteynard at Translations: Bates International Poetry Festival in 2010. His French web site can be found here. I was asked to make a portrait of the nine visiting artists. Each poet was asked to write a short piece that would be incorporated into the festival poster.
