PoemCity 2017 is upon us and is looking to be yet another amazing month-long, city-wide celebration of poetry. I can’t imagine any other small town doing National Poetry Month better than Montpelier! In addition to hundreds of poems written by Vermont poets in the windows of shops downtown, PoemCity will offer a month’s worth of lectures, workshops, and readings.
PoemCity’s kick-off event will feature music and poetry by youth and will be held at Lost Nation Theater (39 Main Street), making it a true intersection of the arts. Join us Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 1:30PM for music by the Capitol Jazz quartet followed by the poetry of teens from the Young Writers Project, hosted by Chard deNiord, Vermont’s Poet Laureate.
We hope to see you there! Visit http://www.poem-city.org for more information.
