National Memorial Arboretum seeks poet in residence

entry picture

The National Memorial Arboretum is looking for a poet in residence for 12 months, who will explore its surroundings, landscape, and memorials through the art of poetry. The 150-acre visitor site is on the edge of the National Forest in Staffordshire, is part of the Royal British Legion, and exists to ensure that the contribution of those who have served and sacrificed is never forgotten; the baton of Remembrance is passed on through the generations; and provides a year-round space to celebrate lives lived and commemorate lives lost.

The aim of the poetry post will be to create a selection of unique and original poems – around one a month. In addition, each month the poet in residence will facilitate a workshop session with a different community or educational group to explore the words, sounds and landscape of a chosen space or theme. The closing date for applying is 13 February. More details
