R. V. Schmidt

R.V. Schmidt is an award-winning Cowboy Poet, artist and storyteller. He is the author of several books and has been included in an anthology by the Lakeside Writers Guild. He is a winner in the Fifteenth Annual Voices of Lincoln Poetry Contest, The Joshua Blair Memorial Arts award and has received a Certificate of Acknowledgement from Congress for his work, some of which has been published in Western Writers of America’s Roundup magazine and American Cowboy magazine. He is the tenth Lake County Poet Laureate, served as Coordinator for the Poetry Out Loud 2019-2020 competition, and former Literary Chair of the Lake County Arts Council. Notes on being Poet Laureate: “The thing that inspired me most as laureate was the response from our Lake County High School students and teachers to my Record-Bee column ‘Creative Expressions’. I would say my favorite accomplishment was bringing more schools into the ‘Poetry Out Loud’ competition.” Books available at rvschmidt2@gmail.com or Amazon.
