Summary
As a part of a Veterans History Project art showcase, a panel of occupational poets read and discussed their work. Occupational poetry is a category of verbal art in the form of folk poetry that is anchored in communities of work, often manifesting in the everyday settings of jobs and employment. Folklore scholarship and fieldwork has focused on the poetic traditions within a narrow range of occupational roles, including miners, commercial fishers, veterans and cowboys.
