Where I Want to Live: Poems for Fair and Affordable Housing by Anthology

Small Press

Where I Want to Live: Poems for Fair and Affordable Housing is a poetry chapbook anthology project to honor all who participated in Milwaukee's 1967-68 open housing marches and to envision and help build the inclusive community we need. Inclusive of a range of poets and poetic styles, the chapbook serves as a metaphor for the inclusive neighborhoods we value and seek to build.
