I suggested to Off the Shelf, Sheffield’s literary organisation (which organises the annual literary festival in October) that the city should have some sort of guide to the public poetry scattered across the city. We’ve poetry by Roger McGough, Carol Ann Duffy, Benjamin Zephaniah, Andrew Motion and many others scattered around the city.

They’ve asked me to compile such a thing: a list, photos, a website, a map.

If you know of any public poetry on buildings or artwork in and around Sheffield, that’s free to access and read, please let me know.
