Seventeen poets from nine towns along the coast of Washington County have just produced an anthology of their work, published by the Primavera Press. Who would have guessed there would be so many poets in such a rural area?

Their book is entitled From a Far Corner, an Anthology of Poetry from the Easternmost Reaches of Maine
