Places of Poetry

Inspired by Michael Drayton who published a 15,000-line epic of national description, called Poly-Olbion in the 16th century,  Places of Poetry is an interactive poetry map of England and Wales (no Scotland, Northern Ireland or Irish Republic sadly) that has been running since April 2019.  Over the Summer months, writers have been pinning up their poems of place and there are now over seven thousand dotted everywhere.

I’ve enjoyed participating and exploring places familiar to me through the words of others.

This is one of my favourites. First Impressions by Alison Johnson.
