The Seattle Poetic Grid is a community poetry project launched by the city's civic poet, Claudia Castro Luna. This project will appeal to poetry lovers around the world as well as those with a personal connection to the Washington city. On the Seattle Poetry Grid, visitors will find dozens of poems that take place in the the rapidly changing coastal city, mapped out in accordance to the places they describe. When visitors select a pin, they can view not only the poem related to each place, but also an accompanying photograph. Visitors can also explore this project via the index of poets; the project features both well-known and emerging writers. Castro Luna's own contribution to this project is the poem "A Corner to Love," which is mapped onto Seattle's City Hall. It includes the line "...We live in the city, and the city lives in us."
