Curating Home is a collection of poems by Kansas City-metro area poets from both sides of the state line fully representing poetry throughout Kansas City. This anthology was published by Woodneath Press in conjunction with the Missouri Bicentennial "State of Stories" programming offered by Mid-Continent Public Library's Story Center and the University of Missouri's Extension Community Arts Program. Funding for State of Stories have been provided by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and the William T. Kemper Foundation - Commerce Bank, Trustee. The anthology consists of 44 previously unpublished poems by 34 regional poets and was co-edited by Kansas City-based poets José Faus, Marianne Kunkel, and Glenn North. Foreword provided by former Missouri Poet Laureate, William Trowbridge.
Local graphic designer, Amber Noll, created the book cover based on the identified theme of the submitted poems: Curating Home. The end product is an anthology of Kansas City poetry with cover art created by a Kansas City artist. Just one more way Woodneath Press is embracing its tagline of local author, local content.
