If you would like to invite Kim to join your community for a public reading or event, please fill out the request form below. Reservations are made based on Kim’s availability, and cannot be requested past May 2020 (when a new Poet Laureate will be announced and new requests may be made).



Please complete this form to request the Poet Laureate at your event. Schedule requests are considered based on the Poet Laureate’s availability. The Poet Laureate will follow up with you regarding your request. Kim Stafford’s term will end May 2020.



If your appearance request is approved, and your event is focused on Kim Stafford, you will be responsible for the following:

• Introducing the Oregon Poet Laureate as "appointed by Governor Kate Brown, and that the Poet Laureate program is a collaborative project of the state’s five cultural partners: Oregon Arts Commission, Oregon Humanities, Oregon Heritage Commission, Oregon Historical Society, and State Historic Preservation Office, with funding from the Oregon Cultural Trust."

• Distributing and collecting audience feedback forms (provided by Oregon Humanities) and returning them within thirty days of the event
