Pikes Peak Poet Laureate Project - About Us


The mission of the Pikes Peak Region Poet Laureate Project is to inspire and celebrate poets and poetry in the community.


The goal of the Poet Laureate project is to designate the best of our region’s poets as Poet Laureate and to support related programming that connects poets and poetry with our community in ways that are personal and meaningful.

  • The Project will also connect other regional poets with community groups and schools for special programs in the Pikes Peak Region (El Paso and Teller counties.)
