Your neighbors are poets. Maybe you are too!

Every spring in the North County, the April showers cause a variety of poems to flood into the Adirondack Center for Writing, and the deluge creates a Poem Village.  An average of 200 poems get submitted, and the works appear for everyone to read.  Spotlight producer Paul Larson and the Assistant to the Director at the Adirondack Center for Writing, Baylee Annis, discuss PoemVillage 2021, and how the release of poems is different in the COVID era from the habitual display of poems in the windows of Saranac Lake businesses.

Poetry celebrations continue in the merry month of May, when the Raining Poetry Project hits the sidewalks of Saranac Lake, in partnership with the Village of Saranac Lake’s Arts & Culture Advisory Board.
