What We Do

We manage the Poet Laureate selection process, leverage a network of literary professionals to fuel submittals, and promote Poet Laureate projects and activities on behalf of Santa Clara County.

Who We Serve

As the Poet Laureate administrator, we serve the Santa Clara County Library in their effort to celebrate the art of poetry and make poetry more accessible in the everyday lives of Santa Clara County residents.

Why It’s Important

Poet Laureate programs grow public awareness in the literary arts, foster cross-cultural understanding, and connect us to our heritage and to each other.

What’s Been Done

What’s Next

Look forward to opportunities to engage in poetry events with current Poet Laureate, Janice Sapigao. Applications for the 2022-2023 Poet Laureate will be open in Fall 2021.
