Arts & Humanities Bainbridge is excited to announce the creation of a Poet Laureate position for Bainbridge Island!

What is a Poet Laureate?
Simply, a Poet Laureate is an advocate for the art of poetry.

More specifically, a Poet Laureate is a writer, teacher, host, and communicator who can connect with individuals and community groups to promote the writing and enjoyment of poetry on Bainbridge Island.

Our Bainbridge Island Poet Laureate will host readings, offer classes and workshops, liaise with other poets in the Puget Sound region, and encourage Bainbridge Island poets of all ages. The Poet Laureate will receive a modest honorarium and will be supported by a team of volunteers. Applicants must be at least 18 years old, reside on Bainbridge Island, and be comfortable with public speaking.
