National Poetry Month - 2012

In celebration of the 17th Annual National Poetry Month in 2012, Poetry Santa Cruz and phren-Z have teamed up to create a phren-Z FloodLight Feature, showcasing the poetry of 17 local poets who were selected by the Poetry Santa Cruz Board.

Santa Cruz Voices

Asked to name and gather poems from 17 Santa Cruz poets to celebrate National Poetry Month’s 17th year, we found the task daunting. We are blessed with so many to choose from. We could begin with Adrienne Rich, our star just now taken from us. Ellen Bass. Joseph Stroud. Robert Sward. Gary Young, our first county Laureate, and David Swanger, our second. All nationally known, awarded and loved. We choose to offer you these 17 poets, with their range of backgrounds, subjects, and voices. We’d like you to get to know them better. Enjoy!
