How many poets does it take to change a light bulb?

Only Ten Days Left : placesofpoetry.org.uk

Am I the last PG-er to catch on to this site?
Doors close Oct 31 … a Samhain to remember!
It's a great site inviting all-comers to 'pin' their poems to a map of these fair isles. Inspired by early 17th century dude Michael Drayton's 'Poly- Olbion' epic, it's self-selecting (you'll find both suet and silver sixpences here) and in my view under-subscribed.
They plan a spin-off anthology so you might even get in print.
How many PG-ers can you spot? I only found one! (apart from me of course . . . I've 'poem-bombed' the American Ambassador's Residence in Regent's Park).
Armitage kicked it off, get your timing right and you could probably stick the final pin.

Hi Jules. That may be me. :wink:
Thanks for the link.
I've just dropped mine in half an hour ago. :)
Middlesbrough.

Some great stuff posted there.
In my rush, I posted a random poem.
I thought it was about poets from all areas posting their poem of choice.
I then went on to read several others posted, to discover they were mainly about the place they lived.
Oh. The penny dropped a little too late for me.
Ok. I guess mine wont be appearing on the map. :lol:

I was waiting for an e-mail to say Sorry, but the content of your poem is not suitable


Anyway, to my surprise, I dandered on over there a short while ago to see it settled in my chosen spot.
How lovely. :D
