Monday Muse: Oregon's Paulann Petersen

. . . Poetry speaks to us in the language of insight, empathy.
Poetry speaks to us as we are
 at our most creative, attentive, responsive. . . .
~ Paulann Petersen, Oregon Poet Laureate

Paulann Petersen is Oregon's sixth Poet Laureate (see my profile of her here). Earlier this year, Oregon Art Beat broadcast an interview with Petersen and filmed her travels around the state. Take a few minutes to watch the video and catch up with what this wonderful advocate for poetry has been doing since her appointment in 2010.
