Here’s my Laureate award!

On July 11, 2014, NC Governor Pat McCory has dismantled the NC art community’s long-standing jurying process for the state’s Poet Laureate position, insisting that “anyone who wants to should become Poet Laureate,” adding, “Why not? What the heck?” The NC Department of Cultural Resources has released a blank certificate form, inviting NC residents to fulfill their dreams of Laureate-dom by downloading and completing the awards on their own. The position’s $10,000 stipend is expected to be divvied up between all persons who mail a copies of their completed forms to:

Governor Pat McCrory
