Call for Poets for 2017 Poetry Ambassadors


Cambridge Arts and the City of Cambridge are pleased to announce an exciting new opportunity for poets to engage with the community. Rather than a single 'figurehead' position for poetry in Cambridge, Poetry Ambassadors will be engaged to develop programs highlighting the rich diversity of literary arts happening in the City.

The goal of the Cambridge Arts Poetry program is to create opportunities for the Cambridge community to engage with and promote poetry from diverse backgrounds & styles.

Poetry Ambassadors will be selected via an open call for proposals.

Applicants are asked to prepare & submit proposals for consideration for one of the four event openings in 2017. All styles of creative writing, from Page to Stage and everything in between, are welcome to submit.

For full ambassador responsibilities and proposal requirements,
please visit the Poetry Ambassadors Page/

Proposals should be submitted by 5:00pm on December 15, 2016 to Julie Barry at Poets will be notified of selection by February 1, 2017.
