Dear Mother, don't cry.
I'll return in the spring.

Kalani Pickhart holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Arizona State University. She finished her first novel, which interweaves four narratives during the pro-European protests in Kyiv, Ukraine in 2013 - 2014, and she is currently working on a short story collection inspired by Slavic and Germanic folktales. Her interest in Slavic Studies stems from her family heritage -- her great grandparents grew up in Crvenka, and moved to Vienna after WWII.
She currently lives in Phoenix.
To the end, my dear.
- Igor Stravinsky
