Max Garland Named Wisconsin's New Poet Laureate

Excerpt:   Garland, now charged with promoting poetry across the state, will receive $2,000 and two weeklong residencies at Shake Rag Alley School for Arts and Crafts in Mineral Point. The poet laureate position, eliminated from the governor's office in early 2011, is now supported by the Wisconsin Poet Laureate Commission under the stewardship of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters.
