PoemCity has been a fixture in Montpelier since 2010, filling the Capital City’s storefront windows with local artists’ poems during April, National Poetry Month. This year’s month-long celebration also includes a range of live readings, workshops, and other events, some on Zoom and some held in person in various locations around Montpelier. Visit PoemCity online for the full lineup of free, public events! On that page, you can also see the full list of poets featured this year and the location of each poem around town.

Be sure to stop  by College Hall to view the poems posted in the vestibule at 36 College Street. The display will feature work by VCFA alumnx Sue D. Burton (’96 W), Tracy Haught (’20 WP), and Nancy Hewitt (’02 W), former faculty member Frances Cannon, and staff member Sarah Hooker.
