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 Charlie Braxton joins host and Mississippi Poet Laureate Catherine Pierce to talk about boldness in writing, the importance of breath, and why we might think of poems as "word-music."
