Poetry Sunday

Each Sunday morning WCAI features a different local poet.

The Cape and Islands region has long provided inspiration to artists. Now WCAI is giving poetry a place in its weekly line-up. Every Sunday morning during Weekend Edition the work of a different local poet will be featured. Join us at 8:34 for Poetry Sunday.

Our spring submission period closed on May 31. If you submitted a poem, you will hear from us before end of July. Thanks for your patience. Information about the poetry panel is here.
