In August of 2018, eleven Norwalk poets stepped into the recording booth to capture their voices so that audiences could experience their poetry out loud. The project was conceived by Poet Laureate Laurel S. Peterson and Marc Alan of Norwalk’s Factory Underground Studios. This companion chapbook brings the poems to the printed page. Oysterville: Poems the Album is available for download on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Soundcloud, YouTube and most major retail/streaming platforms in about 100 countries.
