On behalf of our City Council and our residents, I am excited to announce our search for the city’s second poet laureate. I appointed Orlando’s first poet laureate, Susan Lilley, in October of 2017. Susan has helped us design our poet laureate’s role and I applaud her efforts. I will appoint our next poet laureate in October and we hope that you will help us find just the right person. The arts and poetry are important parts of our cultural fabric in Orlando. Our poet laureate creates and expands our literary engagement with our residents and community. We are partnering with United Arts of Central Florida to find Orlando’s next poet laureate!

Sincerely,
Buddy Dyer, Mayor of Orlando
