Environmental arts organisation Cape Farewell and the Poetry Society commissioned me to curate their SWITCH website from their archive as an inspiration source to help young poets write about climate change. I set online challenges and judged the Young Poets Network entries they provoked.
Cape Farewell’s archive is a treasure trove.
And a sharp reminder of poetry’s potential as an art of witness.
I set four poetry challenges using archive materials
and selected winners and runners up from around the world
who read their work at Rich Mix.
