The Netherlands

Utrecht’s Guild of Poets was established in 2009 by the former first City Poet of Utrecht, Ingmar Heytze, who is now an honorary member of the Guild. Two years later, the municipality gave the responsibility of writing city poems to the Guild and since then, the poets have produced a wide range of city poems. They have also made it their mission to increase the visibility of poetry in the Cathedral City. The Guild of Poets is currently made up of fourteen professional poets, including walking guides Onno Kosters, Fred Penninga and Anne Broeksma.
