What Are We Doing For Poetry Month?: Kelly Cherry in Virginia

March 18, 2011

As April — not so much the cruelest month as National poetry month — approaches, we will be sharing what we’re doing as poets laureate of our respective state.

Kelly Cherry, poet laureate of the Commonwealth of Virginia,will be leading a bimonthly reminiscence group at a nursing home that draws on poetry. She’s also traveling near and far to give readings: to Halifax, VA as well as Madison, WI to read and also give a talk about poetry. In addition, she’ll be reading to pre-K children at a local education center, judging a poetry and a fiction competition, and writing two essays about poets. Learn more about Kelly’s writing at her new website,

You can also read some of Kelly’s poetry in An Endless Skyway: Poetry from the State Poets Laureate.
