What is Poetry Pin?
Poetry Pin is a simple concept tethering text to trails. You can write poetry and post it, then walk the trail to reveal it. You can also walk the path to author and post right from the trail. But here is the trick, you will only be able to read other poets' words in location, on the trail, where they pinned them! This is made possible with this bespoke mobile web-app developed especially for Poetry Pin.
Poetry Pin Publication
The first Poetry Pin publication called A Walk Down the Rift (Fly Catcher Press) is now on sale. Launched in October 2015, the hardcover book celebrates a year of walking, reading and writing besides Somerset's greatest imposition.
