Oregon Poet Laureate


The Oregon Poet Laureate fosters the art of poetry, encourages literacy and learning, addresses central issues relating to humanities and heritage, and reflects on public life in Oregon.


The Oregon Cultural Trust’s mission is to lead Oregon in cultivating, growing and valuing culture as an integral part of communities. We do this by inspiring Oregonians to invest in a permanent fund that provides annual grants to cultural organizations.

Information about  the Poet Laureate program, and how to request an appearance can be found on this website.

Please also check out our Facebook.

As the Oregon Poet Laureate, Kim Stafford makes public appearances at various events around the state. Check the calendar page for possible events near you.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust, investing in Oregon’s arts, humanities and heritage.
