After a friendship that began in Patrice Vecchione's local writing workshops and continued through regular meetings at a Crossroads shopping center coffee shop in Carmel, four women (Lisa Meckel, Marina Romani, Alice Tao and Anita Alan) dubbed themselves The Crossroads Poets. With numerous publications, prizes and diversely interesting experiences among them, these accomplished writers provide an inspirational lesson of the crossroads they faced as writers and the journey that has led them to value their own work. Vecchione gives the introductions and reads for one of the poets (Alan) who is unable to appear. [DVD]
