The thirteenth annual Cowboy Poetry Week is celebrated April 20-26, 2014.

This is page 2 of Cowboy Poetry Week information, which lists some ideas for getting involved.

This page lists the 2014 activities of friends of cowboy poetry: poets, performers, radio disk jockeys, and others. It is added to continually.

See the description of Cowboy Poetry Week and more on Page 1.

Poets and friends of cowboy poetry: 

Get your schools, libraries, and community involved!  Perform your poetry, donate a book, share your knowledge.  Read about ways to get involved below.

Write to your states' Representatives and Senators, and to your states' Art Council. Let them know about Cowboy Poetry Week and send a short poem. See more about that below.

Many poets and others will pursue Cowboy Poetry Week proclamations from Governors and Mayors. You can represent your state (see more about how to do that below).

See our 2014 media release, below.

Poets' and others' 2014 activities will be listed below.
