Apply for or Nominate next Belfast Poet Laureate
November 29 @ 8:00 am - December 10 @ 5:00 pm
The City of Belfast, as it does every two years, is searching for a local poet to serve as Belfast’s Poet Laureate. The successful applicant will be Belfast’s 10th Poet Laureate. Belfast has had a poet laureate, an official city designation, since 2007, when then mayor, now-Councilor Mike Hurley created the position.
Applicants or nominated poets are asked to send a one-page letter listing qualifications and vision for performing the duties of the Belfast Poet Laureate and attach a copy of one Belfast-oriented poem. The Poet Laureate Committee will review the applications/nominations and choose a Poet Laureate nominee.
For the particulars of the process, to apply or nominate someone please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before December 10th, 2018, with “Poet Laureate Nomination” in the subject line.
