Lance Larsen is an American poet. He currently serves as poet laureate of Utah. In 2007 he received the Literature Fellowship in Poetry from the National Endowment for the Arts. He has been described as "one of those writers who clings to a quaintly Romantic notion that mortality and love and soul are the abiding themes of life and art."[1][2]

He is married to visual artist Jacqui Larsen.
