Vogue Robinson

Vogue Robinson was named the second-ever Poet Laureate of Clark County in 2017, and she serves as Executive Director of Poetry Promise (poetrypromise.org), a non-profit that develops community-based programs to promote poetry.  She moved to Nevada with a Bachelor’s Degree in English from SDSU in 2013. Since then, Vogue has represented Vegas at four national poetry competitions. Her work has been published in Vogue 3:16 Selected Poems, Clark, Red Rock Review, and Legs of Tumbleweeds, Wings of Lace: An Anthology of Literature by Nevada Women. Robinson’s poetry is largely narrative and conversational, she says she writes primarily to find clarity and to tell her family’s story.
