State Poet Laureate


The honorary position of Connecticut Poet Laureate was established in 1985 by the State of Connecticut. As the state's representative poet, the Poet Laureate serves as an advocate for poetry and promotes the appreciation of — and participation in — poetry and literary arts activities among Connecticut citizens. 

The current (2022 - 2025) Poet Laureate is Antoinette Brim-Bell. We invite you to learn more about Antoinette Brim-Bell here.
