Santa Clara County is looking for the right person to share poetry with its more than 1 million residents.
The county announced earlier this week its plan to again partner with Silicon Valley Creates to search for the 2016-17 Santa Clara County Poet Laureate. The laureate’s role is to elevate poetry awareness among county residents and to help celebrate the literary arts, according to the county.
The application process is underway, and the deadline is Sept. 30 at 5 p.m. There are plans to have a poet laureate selected by December.
