Toronto Poetry Map

Along with Tacoma and Portland and Denver and New York’s East Village, the city of Toronto now has a Poetry Map. The Toronto Public Library project, assembled with the guidance of Toronto poet laureate George Elliott Clarke, currently includes around 200 site-specific poems. Click on the location and you get a poem excerpt (sometimes more than one) along with a link to the Library’s book from which the poem is taken. An ongoing effort, the Toronto Poetry Map continues to take suggestions for new poems to add to the map.
