Cowboy Poetry Sampler

I think that my being a poet and creative writer must somehow influence my jewelry design. Many of the pieces tell stories. They're often more introspective and have special meaning behind the designs. The care taken and fun with item titles certainly is a part of that.

While I'm always looking for events in the visual arts communities, I also look to see what's up in the various writing circles. Cowboy Poetry is a wonderful tradition.
The Cowboy Poetry web site offers a lot of basic information. It has a terrific calendar of events broken down by month. If you can't make Show Low in July, maybe you could swing Lone Pine in October or Cartersville in March?

Nevada Public Radio's National Cowboy Poetry Gathering site offers downloadable audio to enjoy, including a visit by US Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor who delivered the keynote address.

The Annual Montana Cowboy Poetry Gathering & Western Music Rendezvous takes place August 14-16. I couldn't neglect mentioning Montana!

The Western Music & Cowboy Poetry Blog is a good source for information. Larry Gibson lets readers in on events, videos, his opinions and introductions to people in the life.
