Poetry in Suburbia

Judson Mitcham speaks to suburban poets

Yesterday I had the opportunity to hear Georgia Poet Laureate Judson Mitcham speak and read at a local poetry festival held at a library near my house. I also had the opportunity to read one of my own poems to the group. Granted, this was a small, low key event, but how wonderful it was to spend a few hours in the company of other poets so close to home, without having to make a trek down the highway into Atlanta proper. Here’s hoping for more literary events here in suburbia, where the real housewives write poems.
