POET LAUREATE OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY

We’re fortunate to have among us, in our community of poets, both Poet Laureates of Santa Clara County, Nils Peterson and Sally Ashton. Not only are the two of them good friends, colleagues, and co-hosts of poetry workshops, but are also now instrumental in encouraging poetry within our community at large. Santa Clara County has done good by appointing consecutively these two celebrated poets at the helm of “spreading the word” and bringing poetry into the home and workplace of people who hitherto have not experienced poetry, but are now partaking of it, as if it’s their very own Reality Show.

I’ve taken the liberty of sharing the recently published article about Sally Ashton by Mike Anderson of NBC, Bay Area. In case some of you missed watching it as I did, here is the link to the video and the article.
