Wendy McVicker talks with Kate Fox and Kate Leppert about "Women on the Line"

As National Poetry Month approaches in April, Wendy McVicker speaks with Ohio University student Kate Leppert and writer Kate Fox about the upcoming premiere of the Women on the Line poetry reading and poster exhibit on March 28, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Stuart's Opera House in Nelsonville, Ohio.

Women on the Line is an event organized for the domestic violence shelter in Athens, My Sister's Place. Graphic designers were paired with a poet to dissect their work and then create a visual interpretation based on one of their poems.

These women give a sneak-peek of what's to come and the creative process of putting the project together.
