Second Wind is a public reading series pairing students in University of Montana's Creative Writing MFA program with UM faculty, alumni, and community writers.
This week the program presents CutBank's own poetry editor, Aya Satoh, MFA candidate in poetry at the University of Montana, and co-host of the Second Wind Reading Series. Aya was born in Nagoya, Japan, grew up in Massachusetts, and designed personal libraries in New York City before moving to Missoula last year.
