She’s poetry in motion.
Inaugural poet Amanda Gorman’s electrifying performance has already drawn a job offer.
Morgan State University President David Wilson was so moved by Gorman’s acclaimed address that he tweeted out a spontaneous employment request.
“Ms. Gorman, I need you as out Poet-in-Resident at the National Treasure, @MorganStateU Outstanding!!!!! Consider this a job offer!” Wilson exclaimed.
The head of the historically black college in Baltimore later told The Baltimore Sun that he authored the post in a fit of exuberance — but was standing by his proposition.
“I’m very serious about opening an opportunity for her to come here as a poet in residence,” he told the outlet. “We have all kinds of authors on campus, and we think that being at Morgan for a year would give her an even deeper and wider perspective on the issues she is addressing. If she would accept this offer, I would move on it in a heartbeat.”
The 22-year-old burst to prominence Wednesday after becoming the youngest poet ever to address an inauguration.
She was tapped for the role by first lady Jill Biden, who saw her perform previously during an event at the Library of Congress.
The Harvard graduate, who recited “The Hill We Climb” to rave reviews, saw her Twitter following soar to more than 1.4 million by Friday afternoon.
Named the country’s first National Youth Poet Laureate in 2017, Gorman also had two of her books rocket to the top of Amazon’s bestseller list.
“What a day. What a life. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you,” Gorman tweeted Thursday after taking stock of her whirlwind week.
