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
OntheRange@poets.org.

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