In March 2018, the Poetry Coalition launched Where My Dreaming and My Loving Live: Poetry & the Body, its second annual programming initiative. For this collaborative effort, each organization in the Poetry Coalition brought its unique mission to the task of presenting programs and projects on the theme of the body. 

We dedicated a week of our Poem-a-Day series to poems by contemporary poets Reginald Dwayne Betts, Meg Day, Amanda Johnston, Lynn Melnick, TC Tolbert, and Javier Zamora that explore the theme of Poetry & the Body through several different lenses. The featured poets also curated collections of poems by other poets that speak to the theme. In addition, we enlisted the support of organizations outside of literature to help share the poems and educational resources.
