In December 2010, the City Council of Cupertino unanimously adopted a resolution establishing the office of the Cupertino Poet Laureate. Cupertino’s Poet Laureate is charged by the City to officially promote poetry and other literary forms to the City’s diverse population. Each person appointed Poet Laureate will preside for two years. Through personal presentations and hosted educational events, the Laureate will introduce adults and youth to the benefits of personal and community expression, highlighting living and working in Cupertino.
