Poetry 4 U – Geolocative Twitter Poetry

Pinning poems to place

A Twitter poetry mapping project that pins twitter poetry to site specific spaces on google maps. This lets people to experience the poetry while reading the poem.
This project was part of:
Poetry Ireland 2015,
Melbourne Writers Festival in 2010 and 2011.

I also published an anthology of the twitter-mapped poetry, a journal article in New Media and Society, and the events had media coverage in The Irish Times and The Age Melbourne.
