Wichita native named Kentucky’s poet laureate
A Wichita native has been appointed Kentucky poet laureate.  
Gov. Matt Bevin appointed award-winning writer Jeff Worley of Lexington to the post. He will be inducted on April 24.  
The Kentucky Arts Council said in a news release that the governor appoints a poet laureate in odd-numbered years to a two-year term. The poet laureate serves as the state’s literary ambassador, leading the state in literary activities and events through the term.  
He has written six book-length poetry collections, including “Happy Hour at Two Keys Tavern” in 2006. The collection was a co-winner in the Society of Midland Authors Literary Competition, won the 2006 Kentucky Book of the Year in poetry at the Southern Kentucky Book Fest and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.
