To enter the Poetry Landmarks of Britain, click on the map below:
In 2003, to mark the tenth anniversary of National Poetry Day, the Poetry Society launched a search to find the Poetry Landmarks of Britain. Since that time we've found the Poetry Landmarks section of our website to be a first 'port of call' when researching poetry in a particular region. However, the list is far from complete, and we have re-opened the search and accept nominations from the general public. If you wish to nominate a landmark, please feel free to do so - those that are approved by our panel of poetry experts will go live.
Poetry Landmark suggestions may be submitted via the online registration form only, available here. We suggest that you first browse the Landmark pages to get a sense of what else has been nominated, and to help us fill in the gaps!
"a wonderfully simple, useful and visually appealing idea...Poetry Landmarks is a project to map all things versicular across the country...plotted on an interactive map of Britain, searchable by region or category. There are already a number of listings on the map but they need your help to make it even more useful. What are you waiting for?" Guardian Unlimited Books site of the week citation)
