Today’s show featured student-poets Theodora Ziolkowski and Amy Hood, whose credits include publication in literary journals local and national. Theodora is also the first student-poet we feature in The WRUV Reader, our brand-new collection of fiction and poetry by Vermont writers featured on the WRUV airwaves.
Theodora Ziolkowski is a 2012 graduate from the University of Vermont with a degree in English. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Harpur Palate, Prairie Schooner, Gargoyle Magazine, Caesura Magazine, Vantage Point, The Salon, The Burlington Free Press, and Concert at Chopin’s House, an anthology of Polish- American writers. In August 2011 she participated in the Seminar in Advanced Poetry at the Frost Place in Franconia, Vermont. She is the recipient of the UVM English Department’s Benjamin Wainwright Prize for Poetry. A writer of both fiction and poetry, Theodora plans to pursue an M.F.A. in creative writing.
Amy Hood (for whom a photo is, sadly, not available) is a student born in California and New Jersey-bred. She is an English-French double major at the University of Vermont. She enjoys baking at odd hours of the morning, knitting, dying her hair, and the ocean. She started writing at 14, when she made friends with poetry books, parks, and the old maples that fence in her backyard in New Jersey.
