Duluth Poets Laureate Reading Series

A reading series at the University of Minnesota Duluth will showcase poets who have served in the role of Duluth Poet Laureate.

The first reading will be Wednesday, October 5, 2022, 6-8 p.m., at UMD’s Kathryn A. Martin Library rotunda. Two more readings take place the following Wednesdays, through October 19.

This retrospective project, celebrating the Duluth Poets Laureate, will feature each Poet Laureate reading from their own work. They will share the stage with a younger poet, drawing attention to the next generation of diverse and engaging writers.

Additionally, poets from the Minnesota League of Poets, Duluth Poetry Chapter, will be present to host the events.

This free event is sponsored by the University of Minnesota Imagine Fund, the Kathryn A. Martin Library, and the Department of English, Linguistics, and Writing Studies.

For more information, contact David Beard at dbeard@d.umn.edu.

The mission of the Duluth Poet Laureate Project is to honor local poets and increase the public’s understanding and appreciation of poetry.
