Verandah Porche

Poetry is cultural glue - its images bond people.

Based in rural Vermont since 1968, the author has developed
a practice called Told Poetry or Shared Narrative, to enable people
who need a writing partner to create, preserve, and share personal
literature. Powerful healing tools for exploring relationships between
individuals in communities and the dissemination of new knowledge.

Verandah's work has been featured on NPR's Artbeat, and
recently on NH Public Radio's Front Porch. In 1998, the
Vermont Arts Council awarded her the prestigious
Citation of Merit, honoring her contribution
to the cultural life of Vermont.
