Description

I have been conducting a poem a day project throughout this semester. The first project lasted three weeks, the second project lasted four weeks. I took time out of my day, every day, to write a poem. The theme of my second project is people and places around Bloomington. I work in a low-income housing unit here in town. Many of my clients were born and raised in the Bloomington-Normal area. I decided to take advantage of that fact by surveying my clients. I asked them where their favorite, little-known spots in town are. Then, I began to visit these spots and write poems inspired by the locations or the history of the locations.
