Congratulations, Ricky! Explosion-Proof Contributor, Ricardo Maldonado, Named 2011 NYFA Fellow

If you read through our most recent issue, “Foreign Correspondence,” then you have probably read the poem, “Entry Level,” written by a certain Ricardo Maldonado (known off the page as Ricky). Born and raised in Puerto Rico, and a graduate of Columbia’s MFA in Poetry, Ricky spends his days coordinating the lives of the contemporary greats as part of the team at the 92nd St Y’s Unterberg Poetry Center. And, perhaps, it won’t be so long until he, himself, joins the ranks of those he coordinates: The New York Foundation for the Arts has just named him a 2011 Poetry Fellow—no mean feat. So, from all of us at Explosion Proof, “Congratulations, Ricky!”
