​POET LAUREATE NEWS:













On April 25th, at Falkirk Cultural Center in San Rafael, I was installed as the sixth Poet Laureate of Marin County California (2019-2021). Pictured above to my right is Poet Laureate Emerita Becky Foust (2017-2019), and to my left, Poet Laureate Emerita Prartho Sereno (2015-2017). Next to Becky is Poet Laureate Emerita Albert DeSilver, the first Poet Laureate of Marin (2008-2010), and next to Prartho is Poet Laureate Joseph Zaccardi (2013-2015).


My project is titled "Poetry as Connection." For more a summary of what that means, and for a schedule of poet laureate events, click here.
