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."
The Poetry Society was founded in 1909 to promote “a more general recognition and appreciation of poetry”.

Today it has more than 4000 members worldwide and publishes The Poetry Review.
