PoemQuest is an interactive game that uses poetry to explore Newark’s Riverfront Park. At the end of the journey, participants can share their own poems about what led them to Newark and their connection to the park.

Poetry has long been a means of personal storytelling; PoemQuest shares the voices of local poets commissioned by Newest Americans to reflect on the visitors and local history of the park.

The mobile app uses photographs by Newest Americans co-founder Ed Kashi to reveal clues that lead users to “capture” and listen to geo-tagged poems around the park.
