Poetry can truly be found anywhere, and that is the animating force behind the website and the series created by WGBH in Boston, along with other partners at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the Poetry Foundation. On PBS, the Poetry Everywhere "moments" appear somewhat unexpectedly, but here visitors can make their way through these readings as they see fit. Visitors can check in on fifteen different poets reading their work, including Charles Simic reading "stone", Billy Collins reading "The Lanyard", and Lucille Clifton reading "won't you celebrate with me". Perhaps the real highlight of the site is the 12 animated films created by students working at docUWM, which is a documentary media center at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. These short films illuminate poems like Robert Creeley's "The Language" and John Ashbery's "Paradoxes and Oxymorons".
