Memories of Barry Spacks


Friday, February 14, 2014

Friends, students, colleagues, writers, and fellow poets come together on these pages to remember Barry Spacks. A professor at UCSB’s College of Creative Studies and English Department for more than three decades, Barry Spacks was Santa Barbara’s first poet laureate and a onetime “Poetry Matters” columnist for this paper.

Spacks once wrote about wanting a street named after him, and an effort to do just that is underway at spacksstreet.com. In celebration of an informal naming, Sullivan Goss will hold a show of Spacks’s art April 3-June 1.
