It’s Cowboy Poetry Week all this week, April 21-27.
This is the 12th annual Cowboy Poetry Week, celebrated each year during National Poetry Month, recognizing the artists and poets who write and perform to preserve and promote cowboy poetry and western heritage.
Each year, the Center for Western and Cowboy Poetry chooses a painting to use for their promotional poster. This year’s painting is “Making Adjustments” by Shawn Cameron. If you get time, go visit her website. Her work is spectacular.

There are events going on all over the place this week, in honor of Cowboy Poetry Week, so check their schedule to see if there’s anything going on in your area. Here’s a listing of events.
My friend, Yvonne Hollenbeck, is going to be on the radio on Thursday at 2:30 (Central time), and personally, I’d love to go to the Missouri Cowboy Poetry Festival in Mountain View this coming weekend, but I’ll be in Kentucky at the AQS Show, so I’ll miss it.
