Poet Laureate Call for Submissions

City of New Westminster Poet Laureate

Deadline: October 15, 2016

New Westminster’s Poet Laureate will act as a literary ambassador for the City of New Westminster and the people of New Westminster; advocating for literacy and the literary arts and helping to raise the status of poetry, language and the arts in the everyday consciousness of New Westminster Residents.  The Poet Laureate should have the opportunity to make the position their own but the expectation is they work with City staff in developing meaningful engagement opportunities that enrich the lives of residents and visitors to the City.

For the full call for proposals, please download the submission guidelines.

Please note: City of New Westminster staff, members of the City of New Westminster Arts Commission and jury panel members are not eligible to apply.
