Editorial Board
Carol Milkuhn, Vice President and member of the Editorial Board, lived in Westchester, New York, until 1997 when she moved to Waitsfield, Vermont. She now lives in Saratoga Springs, NY

Upon learning that Carol was a retired English teacher, Inga Potter, a neighbor and friend, introduced her to the PSOV—and so changed her life. Over the years the PSOV has provided Carol with many opportunities. As Archivist, she has preserved our poetic heritage at the request of the State of Vermont; the Historic Society in Barre now has a complete set of The Mountain Troubadour, dating from 1947 to the present—as well as scrapbooks of records, photos, and news clippings. Being on the Editorial Board of The Troubadour has also been rewarding; having the chance to comment on the poems of PSOV members is a privilege.

But most of all, the PSOV has provided an audience and critical feedback for Carol’s poetry, encouraging her to improve her writing skills. In addition to the Troubadour, her poetry has appeared in several journals and magazines. Her first poetry chapbook, In The Company of Queens, was published in 2016 by Finishing Line Press; her second chapbook, Modern Tapestries, Medieval Looms, is scheduled for publication by The Orchard Street Press in 2022.

Carol is still teaching—but, instead of high school students, she now teaches adults at The Senior Institute in Middlebury. She also enjoys taking long hikes, knitting, reading and travel.

She lives with her dog, Atticus; a mini schnauzer, he is named after her late husband, a lawyer who practiced in New York.
