PoemCity Anthology 2024 is a collection of poems featured in PoemCity, the Kellogg-Hubbard Library’s annual celebration of National Poetry Month during the month of April. These poems by Vermonters of all ages—from three to ninety-four!—were part of the walkable display showcased in the windows of businesses in downtown Montpelier, Vermont. This celebration of poetry and community includes published poets, former poet laureates, K-12 students, as well as new poets just starting to put pen to paper, and hail from seventy-five Vermont cities and towns. 

The Anthology’s cover is a digital illustration by college student Fiona Perez Razzaque (Rah-Zaak) entitled “Slow Wade,” inspired by the poem “Afternoon at Sea” submitted to PoemCity, for the first time, by her mother Deidra Razzaque (Rah-Zaak), from Brattleboro.

All proceeds from the sale of this book benefit the Kellogg-Hubbard Library and support future PoemCity programming. The Anthology is available for purchase now at the library for a sliding fee starting at $10, and will be available for the list price of $20 at Bear Pond Books and at Rootstock’s website starting April 26th. 

Thank you so much to our partners at Rootstock Publishing who generously publish this anthology.

PoemCity is underwritten by Vermont Humanities, who has been supporting PoemCity for all of its 15 years, the Hunger Mountain Coop, and Rootstock Publishing.
