In Praise of Cultural Daily: Mike Sonksen

Los Angeles icon Mike Sonksen, professor, poet, historian, and journalist, has inspired countless people, especially young writers who he has come across over the years teaching high school and college classes, and at open mics all over the city.

Cultural Daily has been a proud partner in working with Mike to publish his curated columns “Tomorrow’s Voices Today” and “COVID Chronicles,” featuring the work of dozens and dozens of these young writers, early teens to early 20s. Such opportunities, along with Mike’s tireless work in putting them on stage around town to showcase their work, has been crucial in developing new writers, new voices, future icons.

This is why Mike Sonksen believes in the continuing space that Cultural Daily provides.

Please help us remain a crucial space where new voices from around the world can begin to thrive and inform the generations to come.
