ABOUT POEM ATLAS
Poem Atlas is an exhibition platform and occasional publisher of books and object poems. It was formed in 2019 to connect individuals to new and established visual poets that toy with form in interesting ways. Our platform aims to showcase the best of object and experimental poetry in the UK and beyond, focussing on the work of poets who explore the performative aspect of tangible poems, and merge poetry and visual art to create unique visual-textual and interactive objects.
We have borrowed our name from the
hononymous Titan in Greek Mythology who was condemned to stand at the edge of the world and hold the entire sky in his arms until the end of time. A bit like the Titan Atlas, the poet has the potential to be the beholder of extraordinary things, such as
object poems, that can attribute for some of the most exciting forms in contemporary poetry.
