Places of Poetry map for posting poems to be reopened for a few days next month

entry picture

Last year’s popular Places of Poetry project, in which poets were able to post their poems on a map of England and Wales, is being revived for a few days from the start of next month.

In 2019 poets were able to post their poems on the map from 31 May to 31 October. It resulted in over 7,500 poems being posted, and around 180 of these have made their way into an anthology to be launched at the beginning of October.

To celebrate the publication of the anthology, Places of Poetry: Mapping the Nation in Verse (Oneworld),  the project will be reopening the map, to allow poems to be posted again for a limited period – from 1-11 October 2020.

So get those poems ready for posting – and you can watch a video on how to post them here
