Wolverine Farm Publishing is now taking nominations for the 2017 Poet Laureate of Fort Collins. To be eligible, the poet must live in Fort Collins, and be willing to serve our community in the name of poetry. The type and amount of service will be decided upon once the poet is selected–in the past this service has included community poetry workshops, readings, published poems, and other poetry-related events and happenings.

To nominate a poet, please send the following to Evan Brengle by March 20th:

Up to 5 poets will be selected from the nomination process, and then we will conduct a Facebook poll to see which poet receives the most votes. The top 3 poets will then by scored by the 2016 FC Poet Laureate, Aby Kaupang, as well as Wolverine Farm staff. We will announce the winning poet on or before April 20th, 2017.
