U.S. State Poets Laureate

Created by Peter Armenti, Digital Reference Specialist,
Library of Congress Digital Reference Section

This site provides the names of all current state poets laureate of the United States. It also includes a history of the laureateship in each state, as well the District of Columbia, and attempts to provide a comprehensive listing of all prior state poets laureate.

The information on the following pages was compiled by consulting the Web sites and staff of many organizations, including state arts councils, state libraries, and the National Federation of State Poetry Societies. Much of the historical information on this site was compiled by David Kresh, the former Reference Specialist in Poetry at the Library of Congress.

Please send any corrections, additions, suggestions, and comments to the Humanities and Social Sciences Division.
