Cleopatra Mathis- Conversations with Vermont Poets (2016)


Sundog Poetry Center continued the discourse of poetry with their 2016 series, Conversations With Vermont Poets. By visiting each poet in their home, we learned the answers to such questions 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?

Explore our conversation with Cleopatra Mathis with this audio CD – perfect for enjoying around the house or in the car.
