The Moscow Poet Laureate Program increases awareness of the role that poetry and literature play in the community and creates a record of Moscow’s distinctive character. Not only does the program support the work of excellent poets in the city, but it also invests the public spaces of the city with the beauty of language. Along with offering readings and workshops, the Poet Laureate writes poems for the City that are reflective of local landscapes, social situations, or important events.
The Moscow Poet Laureate Program began in 2015, inspired by the vision of the Moscow Arts Commission and University of Idaho English Professor Alexandra Teague. Since that time, two poets have offered their literary expertise to this City of Moscow program; Tiffany Midge served from 2015-2018, and Susan Hodgin served from 2018-2021. The newest Poet Laureate, Stacy Boe Miller, will begin her term on Oct. 1.
