Ruby Poet in Residence: Linda Ann Schofield

It is my great pleasure to introduce not only the 2012 Ohio Poet of the Year, but also my mother, Linda Ann Schofield (and Ruby poet-in-residence, at least for today). I thought it might be fun to talk about the process of taking stories and turning them into poems. Most of us spend our lives […]
