Please join us in welcoming Tommy Archuleta, our new Santa Fe Poet Laureate! Tommy is a poet, musician, mental health therapist, and substance abuse counselor. His debut full-length poetry collection, Susto, was published in 2023 by the University Press of Colorado to strong acclaim. His poems have also appeared in several literary journals and the high-profile Academy of American Poets Poem-a-Day program and Poetry Daily newsletter.
Born and raised in Santa Fe, Archuleta earned his bachelor’s degree from the College of Santa Fe, which he attended as a first-generation college student on a full merit scholarship. He now lives in Cochiti Pueblo with his family and is working on his second full-length collection of poetry.
