sacramento POET LAUREATE PROGRAM

Jeff Knorr is Sacramento’s Poet Laureate from 2012-14.  He was selected in a competitive process by a panel of poets and literary experts to represent Sacramento’s literary community. Read more about him here.

The Sacramento Poet Laureate Program was established in February 2000 by SMAC, and is designed to extend and bring to life the power and beauty of poetry and the spoken word to our community and to increase literary awareness in Sacramento County.

The Sacramento Poet Laureate Program strives to encourage literary awareness by the general public and celebrates the high caliber of talent among Sacramento’s poets.

If you have any questions about the program, or if you would like to purchase The Sacramento Anthology: One Hundred Poems, or the Poets on Deck playing cards, please contact Anja Aulenbacher.
