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.

Want to submit a poem? Our fall submission period is open now until November 8, 2017. Here's how to submit.
