Inaugural episode of the Hudson Valley Writers Showcase on WGXC (Hudson NY) with host K. A. Laity, guests Nancy Klepsch and Faith Green. Featured song 'Sunny Side Down' by Lys Guillorn and her band (which I forgot to mention!)


Nancy Klepsch, poet-activist from Troy, NY, talks about her projects for social justice and her poetic explorations. Host Charlie Rossiter reflects on the Solstice and how a poem by Christina Rossetti became what some consider the best Christmas carol ever written.


Nancy Klepsch is a local poet and a teacher. Her poems have been published in Oberon, 13th Moon, Poetry magazine, Salvage, 200 Proof and Chronogram among others, and online on Barzakh and Albany Poets. She has been reading at featured readings or open mics in the Albany area for the past 20 years. Klepsch is the co-host, with Dan Wilcox, of the Second Sunday @ 2 open mic for poetry and prose in Troy, NY
