Regional List of Poetry Places

Things are really gathering momentum here as Poetry Places reports and new queries come through regularly. We are sorry to have to turn down new project proposals that seek funding from our A4E Lottery Funds - after two years and over 120 projects, all funds are committed. However we do want to hear about your ideas, and encourage you to contact your regional arts board - they're a great source of information and resources in your area.

Our website layout of Residencies, Placements and Commissioned Poems provided one coherent way to organise our Poetry Places. But for public access, the regional overview that follows may be more useful; it's still in development but I'll give you a sneak preview.
