Conversations With Vermont Poets

Conversations with Vermont PoetsSundog Poetry Center continues the discourse of poetry with our 2016 series, Conversations With Vermont Poets. Each month, from February through September, we will highlight a different Vermont poet, sharing their bios, a reading list of their body of work, and links to readings, reviews, websites, and other information. We will also interview 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? 

We invite you to join the conversation! Click here to learn how to submit your questions for the poets.
