The Green Mountain Writers Group will host the 2nd Annual Vermont Poetry Festival in Underhill Center at the Historic District 5 Schoolhouse on Saturday, April 20 from 10 AM ’til 4 PM.

The 2nd Annual Vermont Poetry Festival will include a morning workshop led by Vermont Poet Jodi Girouard. Her call for “Ending the Silence” will feature a discussion on breaking through the restrictions and fear that prevent writers from living and sharing their truth. Attendees will be encouraged to compose outdoors along the banks of Browns River (weather permitting) at Camp Sit ‘n Bull on Stevensville Road (right across from the historic schoolhouse). If the weather is uncooperative, we will gather inside the schoolhouse.

  • 10 AM – Noon: “Ending the Silence” writing workshop
  • Noon – 1 PM: Barbeque Pot Luck Lunch
  • 1 PM – 4 PM: Live Poetry Readings

At Noon, we will break for a potluck lunch and barbecue on the riverside deck at the Camp. Feel free to bring a dish to share.

The stage will be set for poetry readings at the Schoolhouse from 1 to 4 PM led by Vermont Poet Jodi Girouard. If you would like to read, we encourage you to register in advance to be included in the roster. Scheduled poets will be followed by an open mic for anyone in the audience who wants to share their own poetry. We will also provide free vendor tables for any author who wants to sign and sell copies of their own books.
