About this event

Showcase your creativity and represent Notts on an international stage.

We’re asking you to submit up to 100 words of poetry. It can be any style: from free verse to rap bars.

If chosen, your words will be transformed into an Augmented Reality experience. They will form part of an app and cross borders to inspire young people in Denmark, Germany, Poland, Romania & Turkey.
Augmented Reality app with poet


This opportunity is open to 16-25 year olds in Nottingham & Nottinghamshire. Only six Notts poets will be selected. Could you be one of them?


PoGo stands for Poetry on the Go. The project is a joint effort between organisations from six European countries: the United Kingdom, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Romania & Turkey.

A mobile app will be developed. It will use Augmented Reality to showcase poetry to young people across Europe. Poetry by Nottingham and Nottinghamshire residents will sit alongside classic works from the countries involved. It will also feature writing by professional contemporary poets. Stickers, badges, postcards, beer mats, posters that launch the app will be distributed to libraries, schools, universities, gyms, sport clubs, music clubs, restaurants, cafes and bars in the partner countries.

This project, and the resulting app, aims bring together young people across Europe to explore their diversity whilst discovering what unites them.

This project is funded by Erasmus+.
