Instagram Poetry

Come along to view the world's first Instagram poetry exhibition, showcasing the best of over 1,000 Instapoetry submissions to the National Poetry Library.

A whole new generation has taken to Instagram to create and share poetry. In an unprecedented phenomenon of social media, some of the most successful Instagram poets have millions of dedicated followers, multiple-book deals and a cult-like status.

Earlier this year, the National Poetry Library put a call out for Instagram poems. This exhibition 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.

The exhibition provides the perfect introduction to this emergent form of poetry.
