California Poet Laureate Lee Herrick and the California Arts Council invite all Californians to write a poem about their city, town, or state, exploring what they love about it, what joy they find in it, what they would change about it, or what they hope for. The project invites all Californians to write a poem about their state and share it. No matter the writer’s age, origin, gender, or background, all are invited to submit their work to the project. Submissions may be published. Read more about the Our California project here.
