The Virtual Poetry Treasure Hunt

Starts August 1st

Live Canon’s summer poetry treasure hunt is back.  A joyful way to explore poetry, discover new writers, get a smidge competitive, brighten your August inbox (or someone else's) and help us fundraise... 


How does it work? Each day you’ll receive an email, introducing you to the work of a particular poet. There will be links to audio recordings and videos. And a link to further reading.

There will also be a clue… You'll need to hunt in the work of the poet to find the answer. You can do all this from wherever you are in the world, as long as you can get online.

If you miss a day, you can catch up whenever you like.

Like all treasure, you’ll need to guard your answers carefully and put them all together at the end of the month to solve the final puzzle.

It costs £20 to take part and all proceeds go towards our ongoing fundraising. 

If you would like to gift someone else a ticket, then once you’ve bought it please email us with the details of the person you would like registered for the treasure hunt and we'll send the clues to them!
Please help us spread the word!
