Jan 5, 2018
About the Position
The City of Cincinnati has one of the most illustrious records of support for the arts in the country, and part of that record is creating and maintaining a strong role for the City’s Poet Laureate.

The Poet Laureate will be someone whose poetry speaks to the city. Appointed by the Mayor with recommendation from an Advisory Committee, the Cincinnati Poet Laureate will serve a two-year term, promoting poetry appreciation, encouraging the reading and writing of poetry throughout the city, and composing and reading poems for special events and occasions.

The position comes with a modest honorarium.

Expectation
In collaboration with the Advisory Committee, the Cincinnati Poet Laureate will develop a plan for his or her term. He or she is responsible for executing the approved plan and reporting to the Advisory Committee regularly.

The Cincinnati Poet Laureate should plan to participate in the State of the City events, the Neighborhood Summit, Poetry Month activities, and other official City events as appropriate.

The City reserves the right to record, publish and display works produced by the Poet Laureate in his or her official capacity during his or her term. The applicant agrees that he or she will not pursue any legal action against the Advisory Committee, the City, its agents or employees.

Requirements
To be considered eligible for the Poet Laureate position, applicants must live in the City of Cincinnati and be at least 18 years of age. The poet should demonstrate a commitment to poetry, a willingness to engage the community in discourse about poetry and to present his or her work to the public. The poet should be willing to allow selected poems to be published on the city website.

To be selected, each applicant must submit a curriculum vitae or resume, a brief vision statement defining what role the Poet Laureate should play in the community (1 typewritten page maximum), an overview of what they would do for poetry month in April 2018 (1 typewritten page maximum), and a sample of their work.

Background
Previously, Cincinnati had an official city poet. In 2016, Vice Mayor David Mann led the effort to revive the position, and our first Poet Laureate, Pauletta Hansel, was appointed that year.
