Poem on display in Montpelier as part of Poetry Alive!
It's National Poetry Month and we weigh in on the rhythm of the region in sonnets, prose and haiku. As we traipse through iambic pentameter, ABAB rhyme schemes and free verse, we'll also discover what's being published and how it's being presented at readings and slams.

Plus, it's time to select a new poet laureate for Vermont. Michele Bailey of the Vermont Arts Council provides insight into how poets are nominated and chosen for the post.

And, we reach into the mailbag for comments we received throughout the week during our Vital Signs series.





Here is a selection of VPR poetry-related programs
