Jack Collom – An American Poet in Boulder

We were just sent this interview with poet Jack Collom, renowned for teaching thousands of Boulder County schoolchildren to love and write poetry and also for his stint as a “poetry busker,” during which he wrote poetry on demand for passersby on Boulder’s Pearl Street Mall.

Many thanks to Jenna Woods for creating this “MROHP Short” and to Joyce Gordon who recorded the original nearly two-hours-long interview from which this short video was distilled. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Hh9HmVfdzo
