CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The West Virginia Humanities Council has begun releasing some content on the internet to address disruptions from the coronavirus pandemic.
In March, self-recorded videos of some published poets from around West Virginia were posted in “Poetry During a Time of Crisis: WV Poets on Community, Resilience, and the Power of the Arts.” New poets are posted every Tuesday and Friday through the end of May.
“We’re in a unique position to provide programming that helps West Virginians stay connected, in a time when many struggle with feeling isolated,” council Executive Director Eric Waggoner said in a news release.
The videos are available on the council’s Facebook page. Also posted there are “Mysterious Mondays,” a series of 20- to 30-minute audiobooks read by Waggoner and council Program Officer Kyle Warmack.
The programs are also available on the council’s YouTube channel.
