Call for Expressions of Interest

The City of Vancouver would like to hear from poets interested in
becoming the City's second Poet Laureate. The call for nominations and
submissions is open
until March 11, 2009.

Nominations/applications are invited from published poets who are
currently resident in the City of Vancouver and who have either an
established body of work or have been recognized for notable
contributions early in their career.

The Poet Laureate will be selected for a period of two years, commencing
in May 2009. A two-year stipend of $7,000 ($3,500 per year) will be
provided to the Poet Laureate, funded by a generous donation by Dr.
