Welcome to Places of Poetry — Northwest: our local celebration of the national Places of Poetry project by Andrew McRae and Paul Farley. The map below is full of poetry from Lancaster and the surrounding area, ranging from South Lancashire to the Solway Firth and from Blackpool to the Trough of Bowland. Enjoy!
In our Poetry Day finale we celebrated the poetry of place in a very special showcase. Paul and Andrew selected six poems from the map, which were read out by the poets or proposers.
Although the event has now passed, we still invite you to submit poems for the map.
