Wherever I'm At
Wherever I'm At: An Anthology of Chicago Poetry tells a story of Chicago through its finest living poets and artists. It includes more than 160 contributors, including the majority of our essential poets who've lived and worked and written about our city for the past several generations. All the poets and artists, except Robin Metz, who started the project back in 2009, are living. All of the poems and artwork feature Chicago in a distinct and discernible way. The anthology traverses Chicago in time and space. We feel this is an important book for many reasons and a primer in Chicago's poetic landscape. The poets in this book share Chicago, but their perspectives are influenced by incredibly diverse backgrounds and poetic influences. While Chicago is the connective, these are, largely, national poets of the highest order.
