THE CLEVELAND HEIGHTS / HEIGHTS ARTS OFFICE OF POET LAUREATE

PURPOSE OF THE LAUREATESHIP

Heights Arts, with the endorsement of the City of Cleveland Heights, established the Office of
Poet Laureate 20 years ago to celebrate and elevate poetry as an art form for the benefit of the
community’s residents. Every two years Heights Arts’ Community Team (Heights Writes)
conducts a process to solicit applications and select a local poet to serve in this post. The
Community Team is comprised of volunteers with expertise in the literary arts, supported by
Heights Arts staff.

TERM OF SERVICE, ELIGIBILITY, STIPEND

The Cleveland Heights Poet Laureate serves for twenty-four months beginning in April of evennumbered years and concludes their service at the end of March. The laureate must commit to
serve for the full term and maintain a significant relationship to the Cleveland Heights
community throughout the full two-years of service. The position pays a stipend of $1000 per year.
