Continuing our National Poetry Month Theme, this week's bonus show is a rePodcast of our interview with Georgia-based poet Dana Wildsmith from Episode #5. In it Dana speaks about her journey to becoming a poet, her time spent as a Writer in Residence around the country, her love of music and Garrison Keillor's reading voice, she recites some of her own poetry, and tells us about the workshops she was preparing for the 2009 WVW Summer Conference.
We're happy to say that Dana will be a returning presenter for the 2010 WVW Summer Conference. You can find out what she'll be presenting by visiting our conference page and checking out the full Workshop Descriptions.
