Greetings from your Poet Laureate. I hope you’re enjoying these posts as much as I am. From silly to sobering, poetry proves to be a force in the lives of county residents, for the time being, its community leaders. I feel privileged to be in the midst, bringing the poems and comments to you. YES, I’m still collecting general submissions from any Santa Clara County resident and hoping to hear from more. YES, later in the summer after I’ve had a chance to sort and process I will begin posting submissions.
I’ve listed contributors to date in the left sidebar. Another cool option is to click one of the months in Archives, bottom left. This compresses the posts and allows you to skim down the contributors while viewing their opening thoughts, a quick way to see what’s going on.
In the meantime, please do pass on the opportunity to neighbors, co-workers, facebook, twitter, librarians, your favorite coffee shop or mailing list so that we might even begin to scratch the surface of this large, beautiful, diverse county. 15 cities! Close to 2 million people! Good grief, where are the poems?
Waiting to hear~
