Computer Software Builder to Sponsor Poetry Contests and Scholarships with Help from World’s First Chief Poetry Officer

Application Architects, a computer software builder, now promotes poetry contests and other opportunities for poets around the world.

I’m an amateur poet myself

Application Architects, LLC, an international custom computer software application builder, plans to sponsor poetry contests and scholarships in an attempt to raise awareness of poetry. The company seeks freelance poets and the world’s first Chief Poetry Officer (CPO) to write poetry and to promote and use poetry inside and outside the company.

"I’m an amateur poet myself," said Chris Kubica, Application Architects President, "and an avid reader of poetry. I know firsthand how hard it is in this day and age for poets to find an audience and to get paying gigs. Our new (initially) freelance Chief Poetry Officer will work with freelance poets to commission new poetry and raise awareness of poetry inside and outside our company, industry and global community. Further, we hope other companies will take our lead and hire their own Chief Poetry Officers. Wouldn’t it be wild if every Fortune 500 company employed a full-time muse?”

Initially, poetry commissioned by Application Architects will focus on technology and be used for internal purposes and marketing materials. Ultimately, though, the company hopes to raise awareness of poetry by sponsoring poetry contests, publishing poetry books and creating scholarships for young poets.

“Poetry has nothing directly to do with our core business of developing sophisticated enterprise-sized applications that clients smile while using,” said Kubica, “but this new initiative should prove to be an awful lot of fun.”
