Oregon Poet Laureate

On April 27, 2020, Governor Kate Brown named Anis Mojgani the tenth Poet Laureate of Oregon.

The Oregon Poet Laureate fosters the art of poetry, encourages literacy and learning, addresses central issues relating to humanities and heritage, and reflects on public life in Oregon.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust, investing in Oregon’s arts, humanities and heritage. Oregon Humanities administers the program, and can answer questions at jennifer@oregonhumanities.org.
