I love the Poetry Archive. I love their attention to detail in compiling a playlist of poems, in the recording process and in writing the poet's biographies that accompany each entry. It is one of the places I am most proud my work appears, and the resource I turn to most often when I'm asked to share something of my poetry and that of the poets I admire. (I think my most-played clip is Edwin Morgan's The Loch Ness Monster's Song, which I play to primary schoolchildren as often as I get the opportunity: it makes them laugh their heads off). So I'm dead chuffed to be represented on Julia Copus' tour of the Archive, which you can join her on here. Thanks Julia!
