Celebrate Tennessee Poets for National Poetry Month

National Poetry MonthYes, it’s National Poetry Month, but I’m celebrating closer to home with three delightful Tennessee poets in this article I wrote for April’s issue of The Murfreesboro Pulse.

Since my space in the article was limited, I wanted to add a bit more here to share how you can learn more about these poets and their recent work – and buy their books, of course!

Sandy Coomer, Continuum 

Jeff Hardin, Notes for a Praise Book

Bobby Rogers, Paper Anniversary

It was terribly hard to focus on only three Tennessee poets, but alas, I had only so much time and space. Coming soon: a list – sure to be ever-growing – of all the Tennessee poets I admire!

Speaking of which, a festival to celebrate poet Jeff Daniel Marion, “Appalachia’s Poet,” will be held on April 11th and 12th at Carson Newman College. Get the details here.

What Tennessee poets are you reading and enjoying?
