Words in the Woods
Just in time for summer, our new “Words in the Woods” program will allow Vermonters and visitors to enjoy our state’s natural beauty while listening to and reading literature in the outdoors.
Enjoy the fall colors of New Discovery State Park and the poetry of Judith Chalmer in this Words in the Woods video, recorded when foliage was near its peak. Chalmer reads from her latest collection, “Minnow,” including some poems that were inspired by visits to Vermont state parks.
Video: Poet James Crews, author of “Bluebird,” reads from and discusses his poetry at Jamaica State Park for our Words in the Woods series. He also shares writing prompts for those inspired by his words.
Video: Join writer Geof Hewitt in an entertaining video shot at Elmore State Park as he recites several of his poems and leads a fast-paced writing workshop. The video features a seven-minute interlude of scenery taken at the park, designed to inspire you to write!
