John Poch

“I enjoyed my residency and the fellowship with my very creative cohort a great deal. I wrote 12 new poems for a current project, and I was able to edit entirely 3 book manuscripts of mine which are underway, 2 of poetry, and 1 of poetry criticism. The setting is beautiful, and the days are worry free.”
