As well as our teaching, The Poetry School regularly collaborates with a large variety of organisations and individuals on public projects. This strand of the Poetry School’s work we call ‘The Poet in the World’.
Recent examples of these ‘Poet in the World’ projects include a beach-based residency for two poets (Shingle Street), a series of micro-commissions by poetry promoters (Lo and Behold!) and a residency collaboration with London Parks and Gardens Trust (Mixed Borders). A full list of our recent projects and commissions are below.
Information about new opportunities and details of how to participate in our ‘Poet in the World’ series can be found via our newsletter and blog, where we make most of our announcements, as well as sharing ‘behind the scenes’ information and planning advice in order to inspire students to their own new work.
We are always looking for new ideas and people to work with, so if you have a project in mind that promises to good things in the poetry world – such as bringing poetry to new audiences, or developing the talents of writers at early stages of their careers – then please get in touch with Julia Bird via our Staff page.
On with the shows…
