Athens-Clarke County announces the creation of a Poet Laureate program funded and administered by the Athens Cultural Affairs Commission (ACAC). ACAC is currently seeking applicants. Application deadline: March 2, 2021.
ACAC views the Poet Laureate position as a means to further enhance the profile of poets, poetry, and literary arts in our community and beyond. The Poet Laureate is expected to bring poetry to segments of our community that have less access or exposure to poetry: senior citizens, youth, schools and more. The Poet Laureate will be a creative person with the demonstrated ability to enact their vision. The Poet Laureate will make several guest appearances during the term, promoting poetry throughout the community. Click here for details and application.
