She serves as organizer and co-host to the Battle Born Poetry Slam and Words in Motion Open Mic. Her work has been published in Red Rock Review, Catching Calliope: Vol. 2, Legs of Tumbleweeds, Wings of Lace: An Anthology of Literature by Nevada Women and Clark: Poetry from Clark County, Nevada.

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 once a month 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. 

Alzheimer's Poetry Project - The Alzheimer’s Poetry Project aims to enrich the quality of life of our seniors living in assisted living and memory care facilities. The initiation of this international program would extend the poetry curriculum for students enrolled in the Poetry Out Loud program and create intergenerational compassionate connection through the arts. Students and poets will visit our senior population to teach and recite poetry.

24 hours of Poetry  - This 24 hour event will serve as day of learning, reflection, writing, entertainment, & artist  professional development! 3-4 venues will be selected to host an event or workshop within a 24-Hr period. Each event will help people to understand, enjoy, and create poetry of their own!
   
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 Director@poetrypromise.org or at (702) 706-2383.
