This poem is commended in the second Bloodaxe Archive challenge on Young Poets Network, White Space. This was part of a series of writing challenges asking young poets worldwide to respond to the digital Bloodaxe Archive. This particular challenge was written by Sinéad Morrissey, who challenged young poets worldwide to write poems using white space. Hannah comments, "I wrote this when thinking about the year I've had as a student, and the moments I've missed through being in a different city at certain times."

Things I should have done in person, that I did over the phone instead

by Hannah Ross

The Poetry Society was founded in 1909 to promote “a more general recognition and appreciation of poetry”.  Since then, it has grown into one of Britain’s most dynamic arts organisations, representing British poetry both nationally and internationally.  Today it has more than 4000 members worldwide and publishes The Poetry Review.

With innovative education and commissioning programmes and a packed calendar of performances, readings and competitions, The Poetry Society champions poetry for all ages.
