Poetry Map

Capture your Isle of Man in poetry

From May to July 2019, UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man, Culture Vannin and The Manx Bard invited the public to submit entries for a Poetry Map of the Isle of Man.

More than 170 poems about the Isle of Man's environment, nature, wildlife, biodiversity, habitats and landscape were received.

They appear on a click and read map on Culture Vannin's website and form a lasting resource for local people and visitors to explore more about the Isle of Man.

Entries for the Poetry Map are now closed and judging takes place in August 2019.

A winner and three runners-up will receive beautiful hand-carved awards. These poems will be published by Isle of Man Newspapers and broadcast on Manx Radio.
