Poetry In Public Places

From the Poetry in Public Places FB page.

Always interested in these, as I’m curating ten poetry posts on SFCC campus.

There’s a new poetry box in town! In fact, there’s a growing chain of them, courtesy of The Main Street Poetry Box Project, in California.
The Project is the brainchild of poetry lover Gary Maes, who is building and siting the boxes in and around Kelseyville. “But these boxes are just the beginning of the project,” says The Bloom, a county news source.
“[Lake County Poet Laureate] Georgina Marie, with funds from an American Academy of Poets grant, will be working with Gary to install boxes throughout the county. ‘My goal is to have public poetry in every community in Lake County, including the tribal communities,’ she says. ‘I’m also working on creating tiny poetry libraries and poetry murals. I want to make poetry more accessible to all.’
Way to go, Lake County, California, for supporting this progressive effort to proliferate public poetry!
