Where My Dreaming and My Loving Live

Poetry & the Body

In March 2018, the Poetry Coalition will launch Where My Dreaming and My Loving Live: Poetry & the Body, its second annual programming initiative on a theme of social importance. Programs will include a range of events and publications that address issues including mass incarceration, transphobia, violence against people of color, and health and self-care.

The phrase “Where My Dreaming and My Loving Live” is an excerpt from U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith’s poem "Flores Woman" from her collection Duende, which won the James Laughlin Award in 2006. 

Any and all are invited to program on this theme in March and share their projects using #MyDreamingMyLoving and #PoetryCoalition. 

Check back for updates on the March 2018 programs, publications, and events taking place across the country.
