Poetry Place has been launched online, giving people the chance to see a collection of images and poems from the comfort of home.

Poet Sue Dymoke led a series of online workshops to create poetry inspired by old photographs from the Inspire Picture Archive (inspirepicturearchive.org.uk) which holds more than 22,000 historical images of Nottinghamshire.

The results have been curated into the Poetry Place exhibition featuring poetry inspired by archive images of the people, landscapes and stories of the Sherwood Forest area, which is also touring Inspire Libraries until next year.

The online exhibition has an audio introduction from Sue Dymoke, including readings of her own original poems inspired by the archive images, as well as a digital version of the Poetry Place special edition anthology, library gallery tour and the opportunity to scroll through all the exhibition panels featuring poetry by the workshop participants alongside the archive images that inspired them.

The Poetry Place project was made possible with funding from the Miner2Major Landscape Partnership Scheme, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
