San Francisco’s Poet Laureate: Kim Shuck

Kim Shuck – Trailer 1

Interview with Kim Shuck – San Francisco’s Poet Laureate. Kim talks about growing up in a hippy household in California; her new found experience of being recognised by the public as a Poet Laureate, often at the strangest moments; the good and the bad behavioural gains and losses of the countercultural movement, as well as the seductive nature of live performing and how after that artists are often left with an empty feeling, which for me ties in well with the issues of artists and possibly their issues with addiction to fame or substances.

Author: Story Teller

I now work primarily as a digital skills trainer, writer, researcher and assessor with organisations like AIM. My career has mostly been as a film editor and sometimes producer in commercials, film and documentaries in the US and the Near East. In music, I've had releases in film and mostly worked as a club music director and contracting producer for a 24-hour music festival. With the surprisingly warm reception of my book 'Ragamuffin's Tale: Growing up in counterculture', my interest is increasingly turning toward writing.
