Mapping Places with Iconic Poems

Poem on the Range: Mapping Places with Iconic Poems

March 5, 2010 — This April, the Academy of American Poets is seeking submissions to an ongoing multimedia-mapping project, Poem on the Range.

Poetry-lovers can contribute to the map by sharing videos or photos from a poetic pilgrimage, of literary landmarks, or by capturing the poetry in place on camera while reading a poem on location.

Footage can be geotagged and posted to the Academy's Poem on the Range Flickr Group, the Poem on the Range Google Map, or emailed to

Submissions received by April 21 will be considered for a feature on and will be entered to receive a selection of poetry books.
