APPLICATIONS SOUGHT FOR 2014-16 WASHINGTON STATE POET LAUREATE
Submissions are due November 8, 2013
My appointment as Washington State Poet Laureate will conclude in February 2014. They’ve been the most gratifying two years of my working life. My most wonderful sponsoring organizations, Humanities Washington and Arts WA, have just announced they are accepting applications for 2014 – 2016 Poet Laureate.
Please help me get the world out to interested and qualified poets in our state? And quickly, as the deadline for submission is November 8! We have only just started to explore the possibilities of this role in our state’s poetry community. With each successive laureate we can stretch and redefine the position and expand public interest. Do you have a vision and meet the qualifications? Please consider applying! I am happy to answer any questions you have about the position: feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Kathleen Flenniken
