Peter Sears, Former Poet Laureate

It is our sad duty to announce that former Oregon poet laureate Peter Sears passed away in July.

Peter was the founder of the Oregon Literary Coalition, Oregon’s leading literary network. He served as poet laureate from April 2014 to April 2016. A short bio can be found at OPB’s website, here.
