What is Cowboy Poetry?
The modern American Cowboy is much more than just a man and his horse. Typically his entire family lives and works on the ranch whether they own it or “ride for the brand”.
These men and women live in desolate, remote areas; they work long hours caring for sometimes hundreds of cattle spread out over thousands of acres. They are a tough breed who live in some of the most ruggedly beautiful country in the world. Each of them are also loving stewards of land and animal.
Among them are some of the most talented writers of any genre. They write their lives. They write about what they live and see every day. Some of their work is heart wrenching some of it is hilarious but all of it is a statement about the daily happenings of life on a ranch.
The Arizona Cowboy Poets Gathering brings together a group of top hands that exemplify both the life and the creativity. For one weekend a year they gather up to share those talents in a setting that allows us to feel up close and personal.
Join us and you will get a glimpse in to the gentle, harsh, sweet, gritty life that the American Cowboy and his family live every day.
The Arizona Cowboy Poets Gathering is held August 7-9, 2014 at the Yavapai College Performing Arts Center in Prescott. Tickets are on sale now at ycpac.com or 877-928-4253. For more information visit www.azcowboypoets.org.
