Places of Poetry Northwest
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!
Six of the Best
Alongside the Litfest ‘Places of Poetry’ event in May 2021, Paul Farley and Andrew McCrae selected six of the poems on the Litfest Places of Poetry map, which were read out by their poets as part of the event. You can read all of the selected poems below.
