In addition to ongoing regular programming, Oregon Humanities occasionally offers public lectures, panels, and reading and discussion series in communities around the state. We also work in partnership with other organizations to offer this type of programming.
Oregon Poet Laureate Call for Nominations
Do you know a bold and articulate voice for culture across the state? Oregon’s Cultural Partners are now accepting nominations for Oregon’s next Poet Laureate.
The role of the Poet Laureate is to foster the art of poetry, encourage literacy and learning, address central issues relating to the humanities and heritage, and reflect on public life in the state. Nominees should be recognized for excellence in their work and widely considered to be a poet of stature, have a significant body of published work, can agree to the period of the appointment, and be committed and prepared to undertake this public role.
Nominations must be sent to the Oregon Cultural Trust by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, February 15, 2010. Visit the Oregon Poet Laureate website to download the call for nominations.
