Congratulations To Our New Fairy Tale Knights: Dame Marina Warner & Dame Carol Ann Duffy

The New Year has recognized TWO female champions of fairy tale research and writing, including poetry by awarding them knighthoods. (Dames are the female Knight equivalent).

Among those made Dames for the 2015 New Years Honors:
- Marina Warner, professor of English and creative writing at Birkbeck, University of London, for services to higher education and literary scholarship. 
- Carol Ann Duffy, professor of contemporary poetry at Manchester Metropolitan University, for services to poetry. (source)
Congratulations to both!

We are so glad your work has become so widely recognized. I know I'm not alone when I say your ongoing work has been personally life changing.

Cheers! *raises goblets & clinks*
