Mississippi Arts Hour


An Arts Hour Extra!

Poetry is alive and thriving in the Magnolia State! On the Mississippi Poetry Podcast you’ll hear poets sharing their work, telling their stories, and offering tips to help listeners flex their poetic muscles. In this episode, poet, essayist, and Prince scholar C. Liegh McInnis joins host and Mississippi Poet Laureate Catherine Pierce to talk about how poetry can be a history lesson, the importance of being a sponge, and the Prince song he returns to the most.
