Anaheim is seeking its first poet laureate and literary ambassador to help inspire appreciation of poetry and the arts in the city.

The city’s poet laureate will serve as a volunteer for the next two years as part of Anaheim’s efforts to encourage and promote the arts. 

Our poet laureate will hold free workshops at Anaheim Public Libraries, lead poetry readings at city events and head up community gatherings that promote poetry, literature and the arts.

The city is looking to have a poet in place by March, just ahead of National Poetry Month in April.
