Ellen Bryant Voigt is the author of several poetry collections, including her most recent, Headwaters: Poems that Publishers Weekly said is “defined by a liquid precision.” The poems in this collection—with no punctuation and no capitalization—read “as though she has burst in on each poem mid-thought.” Voigt was nominated for the National Book Award for Shadow of Heaven and Messenger: New and Selected Poems, 1976-2006 which was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. Voigt served as Vermont’s state poet from 1999-2003. She developed and directed the nation’s first low-residency writing program at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont. She now teaches at the low-residency MFA program at Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, N.C. Receptions and book signings follow each reading. Advance tickets are recommended to ensure admission.
