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 will be celebrating the poetry of place in a very special showcase. Shortly before the event, Paul and Andrew will select six poems and Litfest will invite the authors or proposers or read them at the event itself, or, if you prefer, you can nominate someone to read for you.
