They’ll also talk about life after academia. Now retired from Minnesota State University Moorhead, Vinz has been mentor and teacher to several generations of local writers. As always, Vinz’s poetry rings true and wise and yes, funny. ~~~ We continue with poetry with an episode of “Poetry from Studio 47,” which comes to us from Patrick Hicks, writer in residence and a member of the English faculty at Augustana University in Sioux Falls. Today he profiles poet Joyce Sutphen. ~~~ Ashley Thornberg stops by the Menoken Farm, a crop and ranching operation demonstrating a number of conservation practices. She visits with Jay Fuhrer.
