Poetry 24



Want to get something off your chest?

Poetry24 is a brand new blog, launched by Martin Hodges and Clare Kirwan.

"The aim is simple: to publish news-related or topical poetry that reflects what's happening in the world, or current affairs. The idea was partly inspired by a response to a poem written by Martin. Blogger, Alan Burnett commented, "I am reading your words and at the same time watching the News24 reports from Cairo and thinking you might have invented Poetry24."
