Continuing Poetry Tour Conversations

Another poetry tour to add to your list in the metro area St. Paul, MN.
St. Paul Public Works, Public Art St. Paul and Marcus Young and friends in 2008 implemented a city project called Everyday Poems for City Sidewalk. Marcus Young writes in his introduction to the project "Sidewalks are the blank pages of our city as a book." He goes on to say "On our modest sidewalks we hope to create delightful moments of open air reading and make public and common the beauty in our hearts as expressed by out poets."
Each year, citywide, a contest is held to invite participants to submit their poems to be added to the collection. Go to their website through GOOGLE: Everyday Poems for City Sidewalk for more information on the project, 2010 contest winners and poetry locations.
