Local Poets

Today’s program was an example of the way KHOI showcases the creativity in our community. We started out the show with Dennis Maulsby telling Kay Puttock about his forthcoming book of short atories, Near Death/Near Life.

Then Jennifer Knox and Tyler Harms introduced us to the crowdsourced poetry project Iowa Bird of Mouth.

Next we heard from several poets whose poems will appear in the 2016 Lyrical Iowa, published by the Iowa Poetry Association. They are Jean Hagert Dow, Deb Lewis, Maggie Westvold, and Ann Hudilaninen, along with Edwards elementary students Chantal Eulenstein, Madelaine Wade and Alysa Grawe. Mary Richards was the lively host for these conversations with her fellow poets.
