A special thanks to our listeners and readers

Thank you, listeners, for your attention and kind words these past few years as we’ve built Writers@WRUV on 90.1, WRUV-FM. We’ve been all about Vermont fiction, essays and poetry. Your calls and emails tell us that you have been, too.

We launched The WRUV Reader in Fall 2012. Readers included (clockwise from left) Nancy Welch, Ben Aleshire, Aaron Smith, Antonello Borra, Major Jackson, Phillip Baruth, Abby Paige, Zoe Lewis, Theodora Ziolkowski and Tina Escaja.

We’re going on indefinite hiatus. Doubtless we’ll be unable to resist hosting and posting the occasional reading from WRUV, so please do stay tuned. In the meantime, you can use this site to listen to our archived shows and use the list below to locate your own copy of The WRUV Reader, our 2012 anthology of the best writing heard on Writers@WRUV.

Find your copy of The WRUV Reader in Burlington and online.

Finally, thanks so much to our authors, who donated their time and their work. All proceeds from The WRUV Reader benefit media education at The University of Vermont, and your work allows us to make that education happen.

Listeners, if there’s any writer who you would like to hear on the radio, you can still reach us at Writers@WRUV.org.

Till then, keep it locked to your better alternative, WRUV-FM, 90.1 in Burlington.

A reading by 2 up-and-coming student poets

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

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.

For more of Theodora’s writing, check out The WRUV Reader, which is also available on Amazon.com.
