Silver City's Poet Laureate Program
Silver City's Poet Laureate Program was established in 2011 by the Steering Committee of the Southwest Festival of the Written Word, and endorsed by the Mayor and Town Council of the Town of Silver City.
The program's purpose is to enhance the presence of the literary arts in the region, raise the awareness of the power of poetry and provide a forum for cross-pollination of art forms.
The current poet laureate was selected through a nomination process which was open to poets from the Silver City area, and administered by a select committee composed of volunteers representing various literary disciplines, generations and artistic callings.
For more on the Poet Laureate Program, please see the Southwest Festival of the Written Word web site at www.swwordfiesta.org.
