Poetry as Cartography

From September 2019, I’ll be embarking on a three-year PhD in Creative Writing at the university of Edinburgh. My research proposal concerns poetry as cartography – using the poetic form to map out a geographical space. For my portfolio, I’ll be constructing a manuscript-length, publication ready collection of poetry designed to act as a ‘poetic map’, if you like, of Edinburgh. In addition, I’ll be writing a longform essay concerning cartography in poetry, with a focus on such contemporary poets as Kei Miller and Emily Hasler.


Materials

I’ll update this section with various links pertaining to the project over time.
