Poems Around Town '22
Press Release: Poems Around Town
Downtown Brattleboro will be awash in poetry this April when three local literary organizations present the second annual Poems Around Town. Organized by Write Action, with support from the Brattleboro Literary Festival, and Time To Write, over seventy poets from throughout Vermont, with a majority from the Brattleboro area and nearby tri-state region, will take part in this event that celebrates National Poetry Month.
There will be poems in the windows of over forty downtown establishments. Poems are displayed on beautifully designed broadside sheets, created by graphic artist Jim Brisson, and printed with the help of book entrepreneur, Andy Burrows.
The poems will hang in shop windows downtown throughout April. Later in the month there will be a Zoom reading, date TBA. PAT '22 will feature poems by some of the area's well-known and much published poets including Chard DeNiord, Diana Whitney, Tim Mayo, Terry Hauptman, and Sydney Lea, as well as those newer to the world of poetry.
We invite you to take a poetry stroll with these insightful, evocative poems.
A site-guide will be available at the beginning of the month with name of the poet, and titles of poems at each venue. They will be left at key locations downtown, such as the Chamber of Commerce, Brooks Memorial Library, Everyone's Books, and the Brattleboro Food Co-Op.
