Writing Exercises Patricia Smith for Inaugural Poet
Posted by John on Friday, November 14, 2008 (03:39:13)

I just nominated Patricia Smith for Inaugural Poet and I hope you do the same.

You can peep over Ms Smith's bio page to see her very impressive writing and performance credentials. But in my mind, what really distinguishes Patricia over any other candidate and makes her the best choice for Inaugural Poet is her love for the people and ideals of Chicago, the President-elect's home base. Chi-town, represent!

You can nominate Patricia (or your favorite poet) over at the Office of the President-elect's official website contact page.

[Mad props to Emily for coming up with the idea first in her blog.]
