Seattle Civic Poet

Seattle Civic Poet

Seattle is getting serious about its poetry profile. The other day we posted about the city’s search for a Youth Poet Laureate and now we learn that Seattle is also seeking a Civic Poet. While the call for applications does not use the term poet laureate, the role and responsibilities sound similar.

The Seattle Civic Poet will “serve as a cultural ambassador,” offering “five annual performances” as well as “hands-on work with communities to engage constituents city-wide.” The position is “open to Seattle-based poets who have an established body of work including published works and/or spoken word experience.” The application deadline is May 28, 2015.
