Inspired Georgia is a unique collection of Georgia's contemporary poets and photographers that engages the history and culture of the state, while serving as a document of some of the best and most powerful pieces penned by Georgia poets and images shot by Georgia photographers in recent years. Representing a wide range of styles, attitudes, and backgrounds, the poets either hail from Georgia or have spent a considerable amount of time in their adopted state. Chosen from previously published collections, representing various stages of the poets' careers, these poems exemplify the great talent, insight, and creativity present in Georgia letters.

A geographically diverse representation of Georgia photographers is included, showcasing a wide range of talent well versed in making insightful and intimate images. The interweaving of photographs with poems (and poems with photo- graphs) creates spaces of possibility, where what's in the mind's eye might (or might not) meet what's found in front of the camera's lens.

While complementary, the poems and photographs in Inspired Georgia are not in dialogue with each other–they echo, resonate, and reflect the places they inhabit. They pay homage to the ecology, terrain, and culture of Georgia, which in turn draws in, nurtures, and fuels the intellect of its many and varied artists.
