About the "Poetry in Windows" Project:

Poetry in Windows, a signature event by the New Hampshire Writers' Project (NHWP), appeared in Concord and Keene in the fall of 2012, as part of several regional festivals. Thirteen poems were selected for display as part of the Concord Poetry in Windows and were judged by poet and NHWP marketing coordinator Dawn Coutu. These poems were on display through the month of November. Although, many of them are still up in the windows of businesses in downtown Concord today, years later. 

View a sample of the winning poems. You may find some of these "found" poems along storefronts in downtown Concord today, over 10 years later!

Poem published in the literary magazine Big Lucks.

Dawn, as usual your poetry leaves me with chills. There's a feeling of a specific moment or memory and it brings you into that moment, into that feeling. I have so missed reading your works, and I look forward to being able to read more soon!
