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, former Mississippi Poet Laureate Beth Ann Fennelly joins host and current Mississippi Poet Laureate Catherine Pierce to talk about poetry as time travel, the magic of memorization, and really good desserts.
