This summer marks the 32nd season for Stone Circle, a space for poetry, storytelling, and music on the Antrim County family farm near Elk Rapids. As part of our ongoing series “Poetically Speaking,” we talk with Terry Wooten about Stone Circle and his newly released collection of poems, The Stone Circle of Poems.
