Maggie Smith by J. Wojdacz

While poet Maggie Smith was in residence at VCCA in November 2011, she worked on her second book, The Well Speaks of It's Own Poison. which was just selected by Kimiko Hahn to win the 2012 Dorset Prize from Tupelo Press. Congratulations, Maggie!

"VCCA will be heartily thanked in the acknowledgments, because I made breakthroughs with the book there that I couldn't have made without the luxury of that time and space. Thank you thank you thank you."  -- Maggie Smith
