Congratulations to Luisa A. Igloria, poet laureate of Virginia!
We are thrilled to congratulate poet Luisa A. Igloria on the fantastic news that she's just been appointed Poet Laureate of Virginia! Having followed Luisa's work (and her practice of writing a poem every single day) since the early years of editing qarrtsiluni with Dave Bonta, having published two of her books, and knowing her as a person, dedicated teacher and tireless, generous advocate for poetry itself, we can't imagine anyone more deserving of this honor. Luisa, we know you will bring dignity and excellence to your work as Poet Laureate, and we are so proud of you! Huge congratulations!

It has become one of our most popular and appreciated books: one that many people have bought for themselves and then given as a gift.
