From the Athens-Clarke Co government website…

Athens-Clarke County (ACCGov) is seeking applicants for a Poet Laureate for a two-year term. The Poet Laureate program is administered by the Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services Arts Division. The application deadline is Friday, November 10, 2023 at 5:00 PM EST.

ACCGov 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 the community that have less access or exposure to poetry: seniors, 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.

Full application form, details and additional resources can be found at www.accgov.com/acac. Please email any questions to ACCGov Public Art Coordinator, Tatiana Veneruso, at tatiana.veneruso@accgov.com.
