The Albuquerque Poet Laureate Organizing Committee invites nominations and applications for the 2016-17 Albuquerque Poet Laureate. All members of the Albuquerque community are encouraged to nominate candidates, who will then receive an email of their nomination and application guidelines. Nominations are encouraged by January 15, 2016 so that candidates have time to apply before the January 22, 2016 deadline. Please submit using the form below.
A nomination is not required for a poet to apply; rather, nominations are meant to encourage and inspire poets to serve their community in the capacity of Poet Laureate. Any poet who currently lives in the Albuquerque Metro Area, has been a resident for 5 or more years, and is 21 years of age or older is eligible.
