Marin County Poet Laureate
The Marin County Poet Laureate program functions under the joint sponsorship of the Marin Arts Council, Marin Poetry Center, the Marin County Free Library and the Marin County Cultural Services Commission to promote poetry in the county.
Laureates, who are supported by the Marin County Free Library and other sponsors, serve two-year terms in Marin and have included Albert Flynn DeSilver, C.B. (‘Lyn) Follett, Joseph Zaccardi, and Prartho Sereno.
Past Laureate projects have included bringing poetry to students and the wider community through mixed-media, an anthology of poetry about bullying called Changing Harm to Harmony, a program that brings poetry to Marin’s senior facilities, and a traveling poetry chair constructed of actual books.
