Prince William County was the first county in Virginia to have a Poet Laureate and to host an event such as this which highlights the county's own past and present Poets Laureate, plus our neighboring Poets Laureate. This event also commemorates "Poet Laureate Day" so decreed by the PWC County Board of Supervisors as the Sunday before Columbus Day each year. The Poet Laureate program has led to many spin-off events such as 'Spilled Ink,' which are Open Mics for the written word hosted by John Dutton. "In the Company of Laureates" will feature a Spilled Ink segment in which all are welcome to step up to the mic. The audience at these events is always very welcoming and many new poets have emerged from this experience.
