Poetry in Durham and the North East

February 10, 2017

Poetry in Durham and the North East is a free exhibition at Durham University’s Palace Green Library on the Palace Green in Durham.

Although the exhibition has been running for some time I happened across it by chance yesterday while meeting up with a friend in the city.

The exhibition tells the story of poetry in the north east and consists of material selected from the archives of both the Palace Green Library and the Northern Poetry Library.

In addition to exploring the place of both traditional and modern verse, visitors are introduced to the idea of the ‘anchored terset’, a new short form of poetry consisting of 3 words over 3 lines with punctuation (the anchor) in the final fourth line.

Visitors are invited to have a go at creating a terset either in situ or via tweet @PalaceGreenLib#anchoredterset. To find out more about either this verse form or the exhibition which runs until 26th February go to
