Poetically Yours Special Podcast - Sheri (Purpose) Hall


Every Friday Poetically Yours fills your ears with melodic stanzas --mostly from northern Illinois poets. But now there's something else: A full length Poetically Yours Podcast.

This monthly digital experience will give you a closer look at the person behind the pen. The first episode features Kansas City, Missouri poet Sheri (Purpose) Hall. We talk about poetry, slam competitions and the importance of poets getting paid for their work.

Yvonne covers artistic, cultural, and spiritual expressions in the COVID-19 era. This could include how members of community cultural groups are finding creative and innovative ways to enrich their personal lives through these expressions individually and within the context of their larger communities. Boose is a recent graduate of the Illinois Media School and returns to journalism after a career in the corporate world.
