Oregon Poet Laureate

We are pleased to announce the Governor has extended Anis Mojgani for a second term as Oregon Poet Laureate.

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.

Information about the Poet Laureate program, how to nominate the next Poet Laureate, Anis, and how to request an appearance can be found on this website. Please also check out our Facebook.

As the Oregon Poet Laureate, Anis Mojgani makes public appearances at various events around the state. Check the appearances page for more information.

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 oregonpoetlaureate@oregonhumanities.org.
