Be the Next LBCC Student Poet Laureate!

A Poet Laureate helps us to "remember."

Laureates are practicing poets who believe in the power of reading poetry as well as writing poetry, and so are good at visioning ways to cultivate poetry reading and writing in their community.

Our nation's Poet Laureateship is a tradition which began in 1937. Our state's tradition (though not continuous) dates back to 1923. On any stage, the appointment of a poet laureate recognizes and encourages the poet's work. Equally, the appointment invests in the poet's promise to encourage and promote poetry in their community's lives.

Recognizing the vital importance of poetry, Linn-Benton Community College joins this hallowed tradition.
