North Carolina poets

If you'd like to see a "sampler" of North Carolina poetry, check out The Pedestal Magazine. The current issue features more than a dozen poets - Sarah Lindsay, Fred Chappell, Heather Ross Miller. I have a poem there, too, and am pleased to be in such great and varied company.
I noted a lot of Greensboro connections in that group. We have such a rich tradition here, including the latest initiative with PoetryGSO each April. I heard Mark Smith-Soto read from his new collection at Barnes & Noble as part of that month of activities, and spoke with Steve Sumerford of the Greensboro Library, who with Beth Sheffield leads the planning for this annual celebration. Work has already started for next year, so if you're interested,here's the link.
