Featuring Hakim Bellamy, Jessica Helen Lopez, Manuel Gonzales and the 2018 Albuquerque Poet Laureate is announced.
The Albuquerque Poet Laureate Program (APLP) celebrates poetry by choosing a resident poet every two years, who makes meaningful connections, honors and serves our diverse community, elevates the importance of the art form, and shares poetry with Albuquerque residents. Join us as we celebrate our Laureate emeriti and announce the new Poet Laureate (PL #4) in this night of spoken word and poetry by celebrated Poets Laureate: Hakim Bellamy (PL #1), Jessica Helen Lopez (PL #2), and Manuel Gonzales (PL #3) as well as the announcement and first official reading from our new 2018 Poet Laureate. APLP is coordinated by a grass-roots Organizing Committee that launched the program in 2012 and a volunteer Selection Committee. This program is supported by the City of Albuquerque and The Art of Revolution, APLP’s fiscal sponsor. For information on the APLP, visit albuquerquepoetlaureate.org
