Allegheny County Poet Laureate Program
All Pittsburghers are Poets is a new program of City of Asylum that will name Poet Laureates in several categories, including the first-ever Official Poet Laureate of Allegheny County. We are now accepting applications for the following awards:
- City of Asylum Poet Laureate of Allegheny County
- Allegheny County Youth Poet Laureate
- Allegheny County Emerging Poet Laureate
- Allegheny County American Sign Language Poet Laureate
All Pittsburghers are Poets will celebrate poets of all ages and abilities through readings by the Laureates and finalists in diverse venues throughout the county. The Laureate announcement ceremonies will take place in April 2020 in celebration of National Poetry Month.
We are excited to continue making Pittsburgh a home for poetry!
