Houston's Poet Laureate

According to the website of the Houston Public Library, the City of Houston is "seeking its first Poet Laureate. The Houston Poet Laureate Program (HPLP) celebrates Houston’s rich culture and diversity through the work of a poet who will represent the city by creating excitement about poetry through outreach, programs, teaching and written work.

The Houston Poet Laureate will receive an annual honorarium of $5,000 through the City’s Initiative Grant Program of the Houston Arts Alliance and serve a term of two years, April 2013 through April 2015."

Full information, and links to an application form are available here.
