Starting today, Live Canon are hosting a Poetry Treasure Hunt. How does it work? Each day you’ll receive an email, introducing you to the work of a particular poet. There will be links to audio recordings and videos. And a link to further reading. There will also be a clue… You’ll need to hunt in the work of the poet to find the answer. You can do all this while staying safely and responsibly isolated, from wherever you are in the world, as long as you can get online. It costs £20 to take part and all proceeds will go towards the costs of Live Canon’s children’s poetry competition, and towards creative audio projects which allow poets and other artists to collaborate from isolation. If you fancy it, you can find out more here.
