For National Poetry Month in April, KWBU is highlighting four local poets to share what influences their work as well as how they entered into the medium. 

You can listen to the special series Tuesdays at 5:44 a.m. and  7:44 a.m. during Morning Edition and 5:44 p.m. during All Things Considered. 

Longer posts will be made available for each poet for listeners to hear some poetry and an interview. 

The series begins April 9th and continues each Tuesday through April 30th.
