National Cowboy Poetry Gathering
Real stories. Straight up.
We warmed up the winter at the 33rd National Cowboy Poetry Gathering with an abundance of stories—first-hand accounts, narratives passed down and around, and undoubtedly a yarn or two as all around Elko we experienced today’s renaissance of storytelling through poetry, song, video, visual art, new media and more. The Gathering culminated with an exciting evening of true stories as host of The Moth Mainstage. One of the leaders in the national resurgence of storytelling performance, The Moth live events and The Moth Radio Hour elevate the craft of personal storytelling. From the keynote address to the last show of the Gathering, we honored the tradition of storytelling in the rural West and beyond.
Watch for information coming soon about the 34th Gathering, scheduled for January 29-February 3, 2018!
