Here’s an article regarding the move to choose “the Pikes Peak region’s first-ever poet laureate,” an intriguing notion that originated with the wonderful folks at Poetry West. The article is solid, but note the silly cartoons apparently intended to represent poets. Gad!
Joseph Hutchison, Colorado Poet Laureate 2014-2018, has published 17 books, including a translation of flash fictions by Mexican author Miguel Lupián, and co-edited two anthologies. He lives in the mountains southwest of Denver, Colorado, the city where he was born. He teaches at the University of Denver's University College, where he currently directs two programs: Arts & Culture and Global Affairs.
