KG Newman is a fourth-generation Coloradan and sportswriter by day at The Denver Post. The poet lives in Castle Rock with his wife Dani and two kids, Bel and Jax, and believes there’s a bit of poetic honesty in everybody — it just takes the right woman, daughter, son or Sunday doubleheader at Coors Field in order to bring it out.

In addition to hiking, camping, cycling, skiing and living out a lost dream in men’s summer league baseball, he’s quick to shoot in pickup hoops and always swings the driver way too hard on the back nine. Newman’s written three books of poetry and has been published in hundreds of literary journals and magazines across the country. The Arapahoe High School and Arizona State University alum is on Twitter @KyleNewmanDP and more info and writing can be found at
