POETS OF THE MONTH DAY 7: Andrea Thompson

For Poetry Month, I’d like to bring to your attention poets that I’ve loved.

Today, it’s Andrea Thompson:

Note: When I find a reader or a poet who hasn’t heard of Andrea Thompson, I make them listen. I had the honour of performing one of my first public readings alongside her. That’s when I realized that poetry isn’t just a book or in textbook that is pumped into you. Seeing her onstage: that’s poetry. -jv
