Oregon Poet Laureate Peter Sears
The money is not great--the governor makes a little more--but oh, the prestige of being Oregon's Poet Laureate.
Peter Sears is getting used to the feeling.
Earlier this year he was chosen to spend the next two years as the state's chief poetry booster.
Sears replaces Paulann Petersen, who visited the Exchange a couple of times.
We continue the tradition with the new guy; Peter Sears joins us with samples of his own poetry and ideas on how he'll discharge his duties.
