Silver City’s next poet laureate is yet to be selected.

This honorary position is given to a person who has established presence in the poetry world, demonstrated a commitment to poetry, and embraced opportunities to engage in civil discourse. Candidates must be at least 21 years old, self-nominated, and residents of Grant County with community ties.

With promoting poetry in the community being the primary duty of the Silver City Poet Laureate, the designee may also be asked to present an original commemorative poem at one or two public events.
