Re: “What does a state poet laureate do—and why does it matter?

No one has yet posted Valerie Macon's resume in order to enable the public to make educated comments on this situation. I presume that "elitist" was not the word intended, but rather something like the word clique (Sp?) is what happens in all poetry societies, I believe, and also Arts Councils. There always seems to be an "in" group that gets and gives all the attention and it is difficult to crack the system unless one self-publishes as she did. Macon's mind may be overflowing with ideas to share with students. I'd like to see an interview with her to see whether what she has done already is the sum of herlifelong contributions, or whether she is bursting with enthusiasm to locate a readership with whom to share her current and developing convictions. We have no idea of who she really is. No mainline media will review self-published poets or authors so we haven't read about her. The Governor must have had some kind of reliable insider information to have gone out on a limb with the appointment.
