Global Poetry System (GPS) is a user generated world map of poetry - we need your help to make sure that Edinburgh poetry is represented. Our city is full of poetry - you can find it on buildings and billboards, written on the stones or stuck to a bench.
GPS is a Southbank Centre project, based on the idea that poetry is all around us, from gravestones to graffiti, from birthday cards to blogs, in the landscape and in our memories. GPS invites you to take a fresh look at where you are and find the poetry that inspires you. Photograph it, video it, audio record it or write it down - tell the world where it is on the map.
It's a simple idea - poetry is all around us. We often turn to it at special occasions like weddings and funerals, but poetry also runs through everyday life. You are invited to put your place and its poetry on the map and discover poetry where you never expected it by exploring the site. Southbank Centre is also collaborating with partner organisations Academi, Apples & Snakes, Dylan Thomas Centre, Litfest, NALD, Scottish Poetry Library, Verbal Arts Centre and Wordquake to seek out poetry across the UK and beyond.
Take a picture, post it online and you are adding to our map of poetry across the UK.
