We Need You!

The University of Arizona Poetry Center seeks enthusiastic individuals to serve in its docent program helping to provide groups, institutions, and individuals with a positive and engaging introduction to the Poetry Center as a living archive. Docents encourage a love of language and advance a positive perception of poetry. Potential docents should feel comfortable with public speaking, leading discussions, and facilitating short activities with a variety of age ranges. While no prior experience with poetry is necessary, an interest in learning more about poetry and a sense of the value of public arts programming is required.
