We invite you to nominate the next Easthampton Poet Laureate. As many of you know from firsthand experience, the City of Easthampton has a long, rich history of utilizing the platform of poetry and literary happenings to activate and engage community. As always, we appreciate the ways in which poetry can call us into ourselves, gather us together, and shed insight and feeling on that which we are experiencing. As we continue to navigate these times of so much uncertainty and hardship, we recognize the tremendous value that poetry brings–and will continue to bring–as we move forward, recover, and heal.

*Nominations will be accepted through March 10 @ 11:59pm.
