Adventures in Label Lit

0
This year, Poetry Day Ireland was made all the more special by my participation in Label Lit: an innovative project, bringing poetry to the people, devised by Poet and Artistic Director, Maria McManus. For 2019, the project was given extra impact with the addition of sound! All fifty participating poets recorded their poems of place and they were added to a digital Poetry M'app and to Soundcloud. Poets also received 20 coloured labels each and were instructed to place them in and around the area their poem was inspired by.
