Poetry 4 u
Poetry 4 u is a project that pins poems to place.

Poems are typically of mobile phone length, traditionally being 140 characters including spaces.

By pinning community-generated poetry to site-specific spaces on Google maps allows a layer of narrative to alter the reader’s perception of their immediate surroundings when they view these site-specific poems through their mobile phone.

Poetry 4 U is run by  Omega Goodwin and Marsha Berry. Omega is based in Dublin, Ireland and Marsha is based in Melbourne, Australia.

We have two current collaborations with Geelong Writers and Pilbara Writers. We are always on the look out for new projects so if you have an idea please get in touch with us via this website

Previous Poetry 4 U submissions were published in an anthology. You can purchase the book for $10 +postage.

    1. Thanks for your comments Drake. We are planning on putting these poems in an augmented reality space but are initially seeking poems. One step at a time! : )
