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 Jermaine Thompson joins host and Mississippi Poet Laureate Catherine Pierce to talk about individuality in poetry, the importance of loving language, and why tree frogs are one of his favorite sounds.
