The Albuquerque Poet Laureate Program (APLP) celebrates poetry by recognizing a resident poet who makes meaningful connections, honors and serves our diverse community, elevates the importance of the art form, and shares poetry with Albuquerque residents.

APLP is coordinated by a seven-person Organizing Committee. The Poet Laureate is chosen by a separate seven-person Selection Committee, through a thorough review of the competitive applications received and a unanimous decision-making process.

The nomination process for the 2020-22 Poet Laureate is open through January 15, 2016 and applications will be accepted through March 22nd, 2020. Nominate > or apply > now!
