Contemporary Las Vegas Poets

Southern Nevada is home to many poets writing today. The University of Nevada, Las Vegas hosts an M.F.A. program for poetry and fiction writing and has hosted many contemporary poets through the years, including Seamus Heaney, Toni Morrison, and Robert Creeley. The city has also featured many local slam poetry events. In addition, every public library in Clark County hosts writing workshops where poetry is written. Still, every culture has methods and means for judging taste and style in poetry, and libraries are full of books with poets such as William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, etc.

The White River Narrows Archeological District, approximately 90 miles south of Ely, Nevada, was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The area is especially scenic because of its rhyolite cliffs on which much of the Archaeological District's rock art is situated.
