The official word just came in from Santa, that Amy Marschak, the Improv Poet, has been named as the North Pole Poet Laureate.

When asked why she thinks she was selected, the new Poet Laureate responded, “I think it’s because my improv poetry made Santa and Mrs. Claus laugh. Also when I performed my poetry, the elves started dancing and singing along to my poems.”

“My official duties as the North Pole Poet Laureate is to perform improv poetry that would make Santa proud. Have parents, children and people all around, laughing and smiling through creating memorable poetic moments. Spreading rhyming holiday cheer at special events, parties and maybe even at some ski resorts.”

About the Author

I have been writing since I was little and found myself bored but yet still trapped in a classroom. So instead of staring out the windows at school, I would write poetry in the margins of all of my school notes. And in this way I could pass the time without having to listen to the teacher when they were being boring or depressing. A few of these poems are in my first book “Poetry for All Those Breathing” which is now in its Seventh Printing. Poetry has always been a way for me to be heard by my family. If I would simply state how I felt, I would frequently be ignored but if I wrote it as a poem, what I had to say would be listened to. Sometimes my parents would even cry when they heard my poetry.
