The Washington State Poet Laureate receives a modest stipend for their
work across the state each year. Organizations are encouraged to offer
additional honoraria commensurate with the activities they are
requesting of the laureate and their capacity to pay.
Typical honoraria for organizations with budgets for public programs
range from $100-250 for an hour-long presentation, including prep time. In no way is an honorarium a requirement for scheduling an event with the Washington State Poet Laureate.
