BWW poet Deb Sherrer

Poet Deb Sherrer reads at the Best of the Burlington Writers Workshop 2016 launch party

If you missed the Best of the Burlington Writers Workshop 2016 launch party earlier this spring, you can now check out the podcast from the evening! Listen to readings by Linda Quinlan, Ashleigh Ellsworth-Keller, Cardy Raper, Natasha Mieszkowski, and Deb Sherrer—all of whom have work featured in the anthology. And, if you like what you hear, consider picking up your own copy to read more.

Copies are $12 each and can be purchased in our Burlington space (by cash or check made payable to “Burlington Writers Workshop”) or online through our digital store.
