Claudia Castro Luna, Seattle’s first civic poet, visited Lake City Seniors last fall to teach a workshop on poetry. Her work culminated in a Poetic Grid of Seattle, mapping the poems of first-time poets and seasoned well-established writers. We are excited to see that one of our participants, Sonia Izaguirre, is featured on the grid representing Lake City. Her poem La Primera Vez (The First Time) recalls her first time in Seattle.
Visit the Seattle Poetic Grid to experience how people experience a sense of place and belonging in Seattle.
