A Trio of Poets/Reading at Arts West: ATHENS, OH
So grateful to live in a town that brings out a crowd to hear new poetry and where reporters write full-page write-ups on new poetry books! In a dangerous move, I will compare poetry to football and say that the Arts West reading in April felt like a big home game, and poetry won. In this photo, we're surrounded by Wendy McVicker's haunting imagistic poems (on the banners!) before our Arts West reading.
Please do yourself a favor and check out the work of Wendy, Carrie Oeding, and Kent Shaw. They are making this world better and brighter. & to hear their work, listen to this joyful interview: http://woub.org/2012/04/20/poetry-mountain-state
