former Maine Poet Laureate
Baron Wormser, while working as a librarian and writing poetry for 25 years, lived with his family in Mercer Maine, in an off-the-grid house on 48 acres. His memoir, *The Road Washes Out in the Spring: A Poet's Memoir of Living Off the Grid* concerns that experience. He was Poet Laureate of Maine. He now lives in Vermont. Since 2002 he has taught at the University of Southern Maine MFA program. He is author of eight poetry books and three books of prose.
