Salinas has a youth poet laureate

Miguel Angel Frias, "the Poet", is Salinas inaugural youth poet laureate.

Way to go, Miguel Angel!  I like your name for a character in my novel ;)

Salinas held its first competition ever to choose its youth poet laureate on Thursday, and sounds like it was quite an event. 

Eduardo Vasquez, a student of Alisal High School, was named runner up.

Read all about it on Mari Lynch's blog. Thank heavens for community journalists!

And expect a profile about the event by yours truly soon enough.
