Pop quiz: Who is the poet laureate of Michigan?
Sorry, but that's a trick question. The state hasn't had a state poet laureate since Edgar Guest died in 1959.
So, we're getting piecemeal poets laureates around the state – in the Upper Peninsula, Detroit and Grand Rapids, for instance. Now, add Lansing to that list.
For the first time, the poetry community in our Capitol city is searching for Lansing's own poet laureate.
