If it’s April, it’s National Poetry Month! To celebrate, The Highlands Current offers its third annual “One Poem a Day Won’t Kill You” series, where each day for the next several weeks a reader shares a favorite poem. We know it won’t kill you, and we hope it pleases you. Last year the series won a first-place award from the New York Press Association for “best use of social media.” Thanks to Garrison Art Center for sponsorship.
The idea for the project originated with The Current’s layout editor, Kate Vikstrom, who loved an audio version on KRBD, the public radio station in her former hometown, Ketchikan, Alaska. Vikstrom correctly thought that The Current would be a great platform for a video adaptation, and her Ketchikan contacts were happy to see the idea expand.
