Seattle Poetic Grid
A project created by Seattle's first civic poet and our 2018-2020 WA State Poet Laureate Claudia Castro Luna.
About the Project
This poetry grid is a project of Seattle’s first Civic Poet, Claudia Castro Luna. It traces the city in the voices of its citizens, from folks new to expressing themselves in poems to well established and beloved writers. We each carry a personal map of the place we inhabit. We live in the city and the city lives in us.
This poetic map is drawn on the traditional territory of Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish Tribe (Dxʷdəwʔabš).
