Artists in Museums: Exciting new poetry anthologies now online
Poetry Anthologies from the Locks, Bells & Peeling Wallpaper poetry workshop series are now available to view online.
They are the creative outcome of expresseum poetics’ 2013 Write Here residency, where local writers joined Mark Goodwin on poetic ‘expeditions’ to three resonant heritage sites.
Through Which the Water Flows features poetry based on Foxton Locks Museum and the Foxton Locks site, including the famous flight of staircase locks.
Freedom of The Mantlepiece presents poems from two workshops at Calke Abbey, where the fascinating decaying interior spaces of this National Trust ‘un-stately home’ were utilised for inspiration.
As the Notes Fade is collage of poetry created in the workshop at the Carillon Tower & Queen’s Park in Loughborough. Mark has woven together poetic fragments written by workshop participants, with the photographs of Nikki Clayton, to create a unique collaborative piece of poetry.
Take a look at the Expresseum Poetics Anthologies, written by local writers.
