Poetry Happening Near You

In these difficult times...

All the West Midlands libraries are closed, and events planned by Poetry on Loan for the next few months won't be happening. But now we need poetry, so Poetry on Loan has commissioned new, topical poems from several local poets. This is the second, from Emma Purshouse.

The first poem, by Steve Pottinger, can be seen here, and the second, written by Emma Purshouse is here. The third, from Brenda Read-Brown, is here.

And in our blog, we're giving regular recommendations for contemporary poets whose poems you can find online - have a look now: blog
