Sam Cornish, Boston's Poet Laureate
From the Boston Area Small Press and Poetry Scene blog:
"Cornish, like the former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky, is all about community and outreach. From talking with Cornish I got the impression he is not interested in getting more PR for the mandarins of the poetry world. He wants to reach what he calls the 'Boston Underground,' which he defines as the community of poets and writers outside the academy."
