Nominations open until Sept. 1 for Indiana's next state poet laureate


INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana is looking for its next state poet laureate.

The Indiana Arts Commission says it's accepting nominations for the post, which carries a two-year term. The commission says the Indiana Poet Laureate's duties include making presentations at education events and advancing appreciation of poetry statewide.

The current Indiana Poet Laureate is George Kalamaras. He says Indiana has a "remarkable poetry community."

The commission says it will take nominations by email only by 4:30 p.m. ET on Sept. 1. Nominations should include a one-page cover letter and resume. A committee will review the nominations this fall.

Indiana created the poet laureate program in 2005. Poet laureates since then include Joyce Brinkman, Norbert Krapf and Karen Kovacik.
