The Poetry Society of Virginia (PSV) will celebrate the centennial of its founding in May of 2023. PSV has created a series of events to commemorate the diverse voices and poems of its members throughout 2023. The “Views of Virginia” exhibit at The Muse Writer's Center, 2200 Colonial Ave., #3 in Norfolk, Virginia in May, 2023. The exhibit will pay homage to Virginia by pairing poems written by PSV members with artwork created by Virginia artists. The poems are all on the theme of scenes or views of Virginia. Artwork with any visual media will be accepted, and the artists will choose a poem for inspiration of the visual work. Twenty poems by (adult) members of PSV and 22 poems by students of the Governor's School are represented. A link to the poems is here at this link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jkgztdhd1y6lbix/ReverseEkphrastic%202023%20ALL%20POEMS.pdf?dl=0
