CCPL is a group of state and local poets laureate in
Connecticut. It was initiated in 2014. The first members were Gordy
Whiteman , Julia Paul, Charlie Margolis, and Ginny Connors.

The mission of the Connecticut Coalition of Poets Laureate (CCPL) is to promote the enjoyment of poetry and be a resource for communities. The coalition will assist with the appointment of local poets laureate and support the efforts of these individuals.


We are sad to note the passing of Susan Allison, Middletown’s poet laureate, who died on May 15.
