Places of Poetry

Places of Poetry is open to all readers and writers. It aims to use creative writing to prompt reflection on national and cultural identities in England and Wales, celebrating the diversity, heritage and personalities of place.

Events and activities will be staged at our heritage partner sites across England and Wales to promote the project and generate new writing. Each site will host a Places of Poetry poet-in-residence, and we will promote and document all events on our website and via social media (@placesofpoetry). Please follow us and help us spread the word.

The Places of Poetry is led by the renowned poet Paul Farley and the academic Andrew McRae. It is based at the universities of Exeter and Lancaster, and generously funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England. It is underpinned by national partnerships with the Ordnance Survey, The Poetry Society, and National Poetry Day.
