What was Poetry For The Soul?
Poetry For The Soul was a Twitter-share from Saturday 19th till Sunday 27th November 2022. Things were feeling gloomy, especially as we went into the winter. The idea was to share 'good for the soul' poems, whether our own words or someone else's.
I joined with two other poets - Hannah Green and Kate Jenkinson - and we invited people to share poems, tagging us and using the hashtag #PoetryForTheSoul.
Thank you to everyone who took part!
