FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky’s poet laureate, George Ella Lyon, is collecting poems from each of the state’s counties for her “‘Where I’m From’: A Poetry of Place” project.

The collection is fashioned on Lyon’s 1993 poem. The Kentucky Arts Council says the poem has been used as a model for poetry writing in communities around the world.

Lyon is a Harlan County native. Her term as poet laureate has only a few months remaining.

The deadline to submit is Dec. 1. More information about the project is available at the council’s website at https://artscouncil.ky.gov/KAC/Vibrant/WhereFromAbout.htm .
