We invited 2016 Walt Whitman winner Mai Der Vang to curate a five-part series that will highlight a small community of Hmong American poets whose voices enrich and bring greater diversity to the literary landscape of this country. Each month, Vang will feature a poem by and discussion with a Hmong American poet as a way to showcase their work and explore the themes that drive them to write.
In celebration of the National Park Service Centennial, we commissioned fifty poets to write poems about a park in each of the fifty states for the project Imagine Our Parks with Poems.
