A Readers’ Map of Arkansas


There’s a map of Arkansas authors, and I’m on it, and it’s amazing:

In 1994 the poet C.D. Wright created a literary map of Arkansas, and the University of Arkansas Press published it as part of her Lost Roads project.  The map highlights and affirms the great number of worthy writers whom Arkansas has nurtured.  This updated version, redesigned and with new parameters for inclusion, was created with full permission of Wright and the UA Press.

Thanks so much to Hope Coulter, Kevin Brockmeier, and the whole committee who made this project happen.

You can order your own copy of the map and find out more at ArkansasReadersMap.com. Here’s what the whole thing looks like:
