For her tenure as Clark County Poet Laureate Vogue plans to implement the following programs:
Poets in the Schools - A program that integrates local poets into the classroom to teach and perform poetry to encourage youth writing & reading skills, healthy self-expression, and build classroom community.
Dead Poets Society Workshops - A bi-monthly poetry workshop series taught by talented poet-teachers held at Pearson Community Center celebrating and studying poets who have recently passed away.
Poets of National Stature Reading Series - This is a series of readings and workshops by Poets of National Stature to expand the knowledge and practice of poetry in Clark County and to create energy for our cultural communities. The program brings nationally known artists to our local community.
Robinson hopes that people will join these events by not only participating, but volunteering to help with the programming. If you are interested in working with the Clark County Poet Laureate, please email her at
