From Our Soundbooth | April 30, 2015

This week on the Soundbooth Podcast, we are continuing to bring you the public reading by our 2014 Jeffrey E. Smith Editor’s Prize winners.  We wanted to be sure and share poetry prize winner Alexandra Teague’s reading with you to close out April’s Poetry Month.

The Editor’s Prize reception where we get to meet each year’s prize winners and hear them share their work with the public  (and, of course,  the accompanying weekend of fun in Columbia) is one of the staff’s favorite weekends of the year.  So often our correspondence with contributors is electronic, and so this is a welcome exception where we get to thank them for sending us such fantastic work.

We hope you enjoy Alexandra’s reading of her prize-winning poems!
