Join us for an afternoon with poets David Cavanagh, Sharon Webster, and Steven Ray Smith (left to right, below).
David Cavanagh often writes poems about borders—not just physical borders but borderlands in the mind and heart. His most recent book of poems is Straddle, from Salmon Poetry of Ireland. His work has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and been supported by grants from the Vermont Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.
Sharon Webster is a poet and a visual artist in Burlington, Vermont. Her book, Everyone Lives Here, was published by Fomite Press in 2014. Webster’s mixed media work has been described as “images of the world as seen from within.” That could be a good description of her poems too.
Steven Ray Smith’s poetry has appeared in Slice, The Yale Review, Southwest Review, The Kenyon Review, New Madrid, Tar River Poetry, Puerto del Sol, THINK and others. New work is forthcoming in Clarion. He lives in Austin.
