Best of Burque favorite Hakim Bellamy named Albuquerque’s first Poet Laureate

Wes Naman

Fresh off his third straight Best Poet win in the Alibi’s Best of Burque poll, Hakim Bellamy is now the very first Poet Laureate in the history of Albuquerque. Not too shabby!

In today’s announcement, committee organizer and poetry advocate Don McIver describes the Albuquerque Poet Laureate Program as honoring a word artist who “makes meaningful connections, honors and serves our diverse community, elevates the importance of the art form, and shares poetry with Albuquerque residents.” Yup. Bellamy hits all the right check marks.

Find out more about Bellamy’s many projects and the new laureate program at abqpoetlaureate.org.

Make Way for Wordsmiths

While slam poetry is an artistic mainstay in the Duke City, we've been ignored for far too long when it comes to the rest of the word-spitting world. Now Albuquerque can join the ranks of 42 other cities in having its very own nationally recognized Poet Laureate during an announcement ceremony at the Main Library (501 Copper NW) on Saturday. Hear readings from Santa Fe Poet Laureate Joan Logghe and Centennial Poet Levi Romero. The inaugural Albuquerque Poet Laureate will be revealed at the event. For more, visit abqpoetlaureate.org.
