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 and high school teacher James Dickson joins host and Mississippi Poet Laureate Catherine Pierce to talk about the importance of reading widely, why failing spectacularly is a good thing, and the surprising variety of the Waffle House menu.
