Washington State Poet Laureate events must be free and open to the public
, with the exception of:
- Classroom visits
- Corrections center visits
- Writers' conferences and workshops
Applications to host the Washington State Poet Laureate are reviewed monthly at the beginning of each month.
For full consideration, please submit your application at least 6 weeks before your planned event.
In order to help manage the volume of requests for Ms. Priest's
time, and to provide her with uninterrupted blocks of time to advance
her Poet Laureate project, beginning June 2022, the Poet Laureate will only be available for events taking place during the first 2 weeks of the month.
