Join Poetry Santa Cruz and The Poetry Show next Saturday, September 24, as we welcome Robert Sward as our new Poet Laureate. It will be a local-star-studded event, as can be seen from the lineup at right.

Most of these fine poets have been guests on The Poetry Show. Also, we posted a podcast of Robert Sward reading with Dana Gioia at a Poetry Santa Cruz event in July.

David Swanger and Robert Sward were both guests on a 2015 show, but today’s podcast is an earlier solo appearance by David, back 2013. Among other subjects of his conversation with host Dennis Morton, David discusses what it’s like┬áto be Poet Laureate of Santa Cruz County. He was himself nearing the end of his term as┬áCounty Poet Laureate at that time, and had some interesting first-hand experiences to relate.
