Count the number of swans on the UK’s canal network. That’s the number of new canal poems we’re aiming for!
All Canal Laureates write new poems during their time with us – you can read work from Nancy, Luke and Jo here.
Some Laureate projects invite poets to contribute their work, and we also commission new poems from other writers inspired by the Waterlines project. Click the dots to the right to browse.
You can also watch our waterway-themed film poems.
If you’re a canal-keen poet, keep checking the website – this is where we’ll announce any new calls for work.
