Poetry is part of the identity of just about every place on earth.
It is easy to miss this layer of poetic geography, but we have set out to map it with every poem of place ever written, by poets famous and unknown.
So please tell our poet-geographers if you come across any poems about places, and send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
