In 2021, the Washington State Legislature approved additional funding for the Washington State Poet Laureate program. A few positive changes are now in the works. Later this year, this webpage will be shut down and all traffic will be directed to ArtsWA’s Washington State Poet Laureate page. You will be able to follow the Laureate’s activities, explore multimedia, and sign up for updates. We look forward to exploring the expansive world of Washington poetry with you!
