Vermont is a haven for poetry. Its unique natural and human landscapes have inspired American poets for generations. Talented writers populate Vermont’s numerous writing programs and many of America’s finest poets thrive here, calling Vermont “home.” The mission of this page is to help unify and strengthen this community, to be a meeting place for all things poetry in Vermont, to introduce, expose, and teach. This page provides information about your favorite poets and those who will become your favorites. Vermont Poetry is committed to cultivating Vermont’s future poets through organized readings and educational programs.
Thanks to everyone who has written in and contributed to the site. I've been unable to automate the site as much as I would like. The design phase continues. Coming soon: personal poet pages with pics, bios, complete list of works, articles, and other links. We’re currently looking for local bookstores who carry Vermont poets, as well as local venues holding poetry events. If you would like to be listed or exchange links please contact us. In the meantime Ron Lewis puts out a very informed Vermont Poetry Newsletter Vermont Poetry Newsletter by Ron Lewis
