Silicon Valley Searching for Talented Poets

The Arts Council Silicon Valley is searching for its first ever poet laureate, according to the AP, "elevating high-tech to haiku."


Apparently, there is a vibrant poetry scene in Santa Clara County that doesn't get a lot of recognition, the council claims.

Applicants to the post must be published poets who have lived in Santa Clara County for five years. The chosen poet will get a $4,000 stipend.
