Poetry, Plastic and the River

Our Canal Laureate Nancy Campbell finds herself paddling through the crisp packets and cigarette ends littering the River Lea. Read her latest blog on the power poetry has to tackle plastic pollution.

The Canal Laureate project is part of a wider partnership between the Canal & River Trust and Arts Council England, which aims to attract more visitors to the waterways while surprising and delighting existing communities through exciting and innovative art projects. You can find out more about the project, and read poems and posts by the previous laureates – as well as upcoming poems and events over on the Waterlines blog, or follow the project on Twitter @CanalPoetry.
