My short bio
A performance poet since 2006, Zachary Kluckman is a two-time member of the Albuquerque national poetry slam team, a Pushcart Prize nominee, and recipient of the Red Mountain Press National Poetry Prize. When he is not amusing himself trying to untangle string cheese, he publishes poetry in such anthologies and publications as the New York Quarterly, Cutthroat, Red Fez and more. Featured on over 500 radio stations, with appearances on many of the nation’s most notorious stages, he is an accomplished spoken word artist, as well as the Spoken Word Editor for the Pedestal. An activist, youth advocate and organizer, he has been recognized twice for making world history as the creator of the world's only Slam Poet Laureate Program and an organizer for the 100 Thousand Poets for Change program, the largest poetry reading in history. As a youth advocate, Kluckman donates hundreds of hours a year to working with and empowering the youth. His first full length collection, Animals in our Flesh, has received warm reviews from Jimmy Santiago Baca among others and his second collection, Some of it is Muscle has just been released by Swimming with Elephants Publications.
