Sacramento’s new Poet Laureate, Jeff Knorr, did not always dream of life as a poet; in fact, he set off on his college career expecting to major in biology. After an advisor suggested taking some humanities courses, however, Jeff was sold. As he puts it, “it felt like coming home.” He stuck with the English department and set his sights on writing fiction, but his friends had a different idea. Jeff explains, “they saw in me the sensibility I had for writing poems when I couldn’t see it myself.”
