Lucile Burt reads her poem, "Dreaming the River."

Lucile Burt is a retired high school English and creative writing teacher. She currently lives in Wellfleet. Her poems have appeared in various small press journals and in the anthology Teaching with Fire. Her chapbook Neither Created Nor Destroyed won the 2012 Philbrick Poetry Prize from the Providence Athenaeum and was published in April 2012. The work of writing poetry, with its careful attention to sound and rhythm, is a kind of meditation that helps her see connections that might otherwise go unnoticed.
