What is Poetry Pin?


Poetry Pin is a web based system to Pin words to the location the author post them, and all through the browser of your smart phone.

To read a pinned poem you must stand where the author posted their words.

To post your own poem, type it into the zones or Poetry Pools web page (i.e. exeter.poetrypin.info) the poem is then tagged to your physical location. This is the spot where others will have to come to read your words. 

Each Poetry Pin Pool has it's own boundary which you must be inside to find and post poetry.


Commissions for new trails and zones are welcome - see below.

let us hunt poetry

Late 2018 Mr Jelleys' Beaford Arts Poetry Boxes were placed along the Tarka Trail in North Devon for just two months, They harvested hundreds of poems during this time and each week Mr Jelley visited and selected poems to geotag along the trail.


Currently there are over 150 poems tagged along the 21 mile trail, open the button below and visit the trail to go hunt these out. In spring 2019 there will be workshops linked to Beaford Arts and Burton Gallery see special Peddling Poetry Page all about this project.
