John-Michael Albert

mike-albertJohn-Michael Albert was the 8th Poet Laureate of Portsmouth. His project, “Ambushed by Poetry” aimed to assert poetry into people’s everyday experience of the city of Portsmouth. In the project, excerpts from poems were placed on buildings near Portsmouth’s Market Square. People used QR codes and clues from social media accounts to seek out the excerpts, with the goal of providing an interactive poetry experience. You can learn more on the project’s Youtube Page or Facebook Group. Or read more about John-Michael Albert and his work by visiting his website.
