Conversations With Vermont Poets Conversations with Vermont PoetsSundog Poetry Center continued the discourse of poetry with our 2016 series, Conversations With Vermont Poets. Each month, from February through September, we highlighted a different Vermont poet, sharing their biography, a reading list of their body of work, and links to readings, reviews, websites, and other information. We also interviewed each poet to explore questions such as:

  • What brought you to poetry and to writing poetry?
  • What is it about reading and writing poetry that sets apart this work with language from other genres?
  • How has living and writing in Vermont affected and entered into your poetry? 

visite site As a means of sharing poetry, we have begun publishing the audio versions of the interview with these Vermont poets. Each interview is available for purchase on Audio CD or can be streamed for free on our website below.
