Her poem “Obsession as Artichoke” was nominated for the Best of the Net 2013 by Metazen. Dawn supports Poetry Out Loud as a panel judge. And she’s had the good fortune to share the stage with the late New Hampshire poet laureate Walter E. Butts and the former poet laureate of Connecticut Dick Allen.
