We're honored to have the work of noted Western artist R.S. Riddick and his painting, "Heads or Tails," featured as the eleventh annual Cowboy Poetry Week poster. "Heads or Tails" was painted at Colorado's Diamond Tail Ranch. The pictured cowboy is bringing in horses the traditional way, with one halter lead. The lead rope of one horse is tied to the tail of the horse in front of it, thus the painting's title, "Heads or Tails." Read more about the art and artist here.

Posters are not sold. They are offered to libraries in our Rural Library Program and to supporters of the Center for Western and Cowboy Poetry, which sponsors CowboyPoetry.com, Cowboy Poetry Week, the Rural Library Program, and all of our programs.

  12 Questions celebrates Cowboy Poetry Week each day, Monday April 16 through Friday, April 20, on their "blogazine." From their announcement:

12 Questions, the questionnaire-based interview blog, is excited to celebrate Cowboy Poetry Week with an eclectic mix of Western personalities. Last year's CPW was one of their most popular features, and they are excited to join the celebration once again this year. The editors are Wyoming natives, now based in Texas and Colorado, and they're thrilled to go revisit their roots with these artists, most of whom we discovered through Cowboypoetry.com's Twitter! Here's the line up:
 
  Tuesday: Photographer Jessica Brandi Lifland (www.jessicalifland.com) and storyteller Waynetta Ausmus
Wednesday: Singer-songwriter Andy Hedges
Thursday: Radio humorists Jim & Andy Nelson
Friday: Poet Doris Daley
 

Poet Spencer Keralis is one of the 12 Questions editors.

In 2011, poets featured for Cowboy Poetry Week at 12 Questions included Rod Miller, Amy Hale Auker, Jessica Hedges, and John C. Dofflemyer.

This year, so far, his schedule includes cowboy poets Dale Nystrom of New Rockford, North Dakota on Monday, April 16; Jonathan Marohl of St. Anthony, North Dakota on Wednesday, April 18; and another poet to be announced, for Friday, April 20.
