What is Poetry For The Soul?  

Poetry For The Soul is a Twitter-share taking place from Saturday 19th till Sunday 27th November 2022. Things feel gloomy at the moment, especially as we go into the winter. The idea is to share poems that are good for the soul, whether our own words or someone else's. 

Share your poems, making sure you use the hashtag #PoetryForTheSoul. Also, tag one or more of us - Ali Davenport @soulsurvivalali, Hannah Green @h_green21, Kate Jenkinson @kate_kjenkinson. 

You can also Like/Reply/Re-tweet other poems. It all contributes!
