Marin County Youth Poet Laureate Program

Are you a poet with a vision and creative mind?

The Marin County Youth Poet Laureate Program Seeks to support arts leadership in younger generations of poets by providing them with platforms that allow them to use their art as an active way of building social change in their community.

The Youth Poet Laureate and Youth Poet Ambassador (runner-up) serve for a period of one year (April -April), during which they participate in ceremonial, educational, and cultural activities encouraging community members to develop their own voices within the county.

Candidates should be between the ages of 13 and 19 (incoming high school, college, or gap year), currently reside in Marin County, and demonstrate an interest in poetry, community, and social change. In appointing a Youth Poet Laureate and Ambassador, the Marin YPL Program will consider the quality of the candidate’s written-word and/or spoken-word poetry, as well as the candidate’s history of leadership or participation in community events with literary, environmental, and/or social justice focus. The Marin YPL Program may seek additional information from candidates or conduct interviews during the review process.

Apply here.

[It is the Marin YPL Program’s intent to make the application accessible to anyone. Please contact for access needs.]
