Avery and Christie talk poetry with two incredible published Western Colorado poets. The first half is our chat with award-winning poet and Ouray County’s Poet Laureate, Beth Paulson, who co-founded and co-directed the Open Bard Poetry Series in Ridgway, CO and leads the Ridgway workshop group, Poetica. The second half of the episode features Grand Valley poet and U.S. Army veteran, Lisa Wence Connors, who hosts a monthly Poetry Night at the downtown Grand Junction library, facilitates creative workshops for the VA in Grand Junction, and is a member of the Rock Canyon Poets group. Both poets talk about their creative processes and read their work for us. Find Beth Paulson’s work, events, and other information on her website, WordCatcher.org. Information about the Open Bard Poetry Series can be found on Facebook. To find more about Lisa Wence Connors, including her work, visit RockCanyonPoets.com.
