Pick the next U.P. Poet Laureate

I’m delighted to announce that I’ve been named one of six finalists for Poet Laureate of the Upper Peninsula. Voting is now underway to pick the next Poet Laureate of the U.P.; the nominated authors have demonstrated a strong connection to the Upper Peninsula, and their willingness to promote an appreciation of poetry and the region during their tenure. Finalists are:

  • Martin Achatz
  • Sally Brunk
  • Kathleen Heideman
  • Kathleen Carlton Johnson
  • Beverly Matherne
  • Saara Myrene Raappana

Previous U.P. Poet Laureates: Russell Thorburn, 2013-2015; Andrea Scarpino 2015-2017.

YOU’LL help pick the next one!
Vote now thru the end of December:
