Poetry is Abloom on Vermont Edition, April 18th

Listen in this Monday to Vermont Public Radio’s Vermont Edition as I and other Vermont poets talk about what’s happening around the state with poetry. We’ll be talking to Jane Lindholm. They’ll also talk to Michelle Bailey of the Vermont Arts Council on the selection of the new state poet laureate.
