Tuesday, January 3: Utah Poet Laureate Ken Brewer

Poet Ken Brewer

By Doug Fabrizio

Providence, UT – When Utah's Poet Laureate Ken Brewer was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer last June, he moved into what he calls a fever pitch a burst of creative energy. He found himself writing more drafts each day, with fewer revisions. The result is a collection of raw poems that he calls his chronicle of living with the certainty of death. Ken can't travel much these days, so Doug Fabrizio joins him in his home in Providence, Utah to talk about life, and the words Ken found to describe his own death.
