Peace Camp Poem on display

Peace Camp was a series of installations that took place last summer in some of the most beautiful coastal locations around the UK including the North Antrim coast and Mussenden Temple in Coleraine.

Glowing lights, designed to be visited at dusk and dawn, were accompanied by the nation's favourite love poems, read out loud by a wide range of people from across the country.

They asked for contributions to their website and created an online anthology of love poetry. The British Library are archiving the website, including all contributions, for posterity. It inspired hundreds of poems and photographic images. Tens of thousands of people visited the project website; to view and share images from the live event around the country, to read and listen to poems and contributions, and nominate poems for the anthology.

The project was inspired by the Olympic Truce and organised by the Artichoke Trust.

I am delighted that my poem, Let's Go Driving, is to be included and is one of only twelve to be on display at the Poetry Cafe in London along with some amazing photos.
