Mapping Literary Utah

Our Utah Poet Laureate 2017-2022, Paisley Rekdal, expanded on her Mapping Salt Lake City project to create a wonderful literary resource called Mapping Literary Utah. This beautiful website is a collection that aims to chart the state’s expansive literary landscape, encouraging readers to explore connections between authors, their creative work, and their environments, or even between different authors attached to the same place over time. The site has more than 90 authors and dramatists archived, plus slam poets, Utah State Poetry Society members, cowboy poets, and American Indian storytellers.
