‘An Average Kiss’ in world’s first Instagram poetry exhibition

I’m delighted to have a poem-picture, ‘An Average Kiss’, selected for inclusion in the world’s first Instagram poetry exhibition which is being held at one of my favourite places, the Saison National Poetry Library in London.

Earlier this year, the Library put a call out for Instagram poems. The exhibition, which will run from 26th April to 1st Jul 2018, showcases the best of these submissions, ranging from work featuring striking typographic design to social comments and emotional confessions, as well as a selection of short Instapoetry films.
