The HIV Here & Now Project uses poetry and other arts to advocate for a world without HIV or AIDS. It is a project of Indolent Books and is directed by Michael Broder.

The project is developing a print anthology of poems that address HIV either directly or indirectly, literally or metaphorically, touching on long-term survival, recent infection, racialization of HIV, criminalization of HIV, globalization of HIV, and living with HIV risk, among other topics. Submissions are ongoing and can be made via our Submittable site.

The project recently completed a one-year online countdown in poems to 35 years of AIDS on June 5, 2016.

Finally, we have our blog, where our team of contributing editors and guest bloggers writes about the politics, sociology, and culture of HIV from a range of perspectives.
