HOUGHTON, MI (AP)--   A Marquette woman is promoting her craft as Upper Peninsula poet laureate. 

The Daily Mining Gazette reports that Andrea Scarpino recently visited students at Michigan Technological University. She did a reading and met with English and psychology classes.

She says she's always been interested in poetry but it was not until college creative writing classes that she got serious about it. She has since put out a collection of her poetry and last spring was named to a two-year term as poet laureate.
