2018 Poems & Events

January 16 2018: As the new year dawns and I enter my 24th year as Poet Laureate of the Yukon I look forward to continued service as an artistic mentor, Yukon ambassador, and a passionate animal advocate. As an advocate I am vitally aware that the brutal Yukon Quest 1000-mile sled dog race is scarely two weeks away. I dread it every year. The short races out on the river during Rendezvous in days gone by were great fun - and no one got hurt.
