I think every City and town in America should have a POET LAUREATE. This would create a great interest in poetry and bring hundreds of literary volunteers into schools. Many towns have some fine poets (like yourself) that would be delighted to serve as LOCAL POET LAUREATE. I urge you to contact your City or Town Council and ask them to pass a measure to create a LOCAL POET LAUREATE. I also urge you to get literary groups and schools involved.
Many schools are delighted that LOCAL POET LAUREATE'S are being appointed. This brings role models and literary volunteers into schools. LOCAL POET LAUREATE'S need not be paid. City and Town Councils LOVE to support things that show they support literacy but cost nothing.
I hope YOU will become your town's FIRST POET LAUREATE. Write a letter to your City Council and local newspaper today.
