The Poet Laureate will serve a two-year term beginning in April 2013. Activities will include audience discussions, special engagements, and a statewide project of his or her design that advances the reach and impact of poetry in Kansas.
PERSONAL NOTE: I have no doubt that there is a multitude of very talented Kansas poets who are quite capable of filling this role (some I know personally), but it will be a hard act to follow, considering that Caryn Mirriam Goldberg has kept the program going through very difficult times. When she began her "two-year" tenure in 2009, little did she know she would still be the poet laureate until 2013. When the new poet laureate is named, Caryn can breathe a very deep sign of relief.
