Southern Spaces, Emory's online interdisciplinary journal of the regions, places and culture of the American South, presents "Poets in Place," an ongoing series of original videos of poets reading and discussing their poems in locations they write about.

The contemporary poets featured give voice to continuities and changes in southern regions such as the Black Belt, Carolina Piedmont, Atlanta metropolitan region, Gulf Coast, Southern Appalachians and the Lowcountry. Poets include Emory professor Natasha Trethewey, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, who also interviews many of the featured writers.
