An anthology of young poets’ responses to climate change. In 2017, The Poetry Society collaborated with the University of Leeds to get users of Young Poets Network, our digital platform for young writers, writing poems about our changing environment. These are the winning poems selected by Helen Mort, who set the challenge and created resources to inspire creative responses. There is also a specially commissioned poem by Helen herself.
Explore Helen’s resources, which draw on Romantic poetry and contemporary art, on the challenge page at Young Poets Network.
