- The RSL is delighted to be working in partnership with the Museum of London, National Poetry Day, and Spread the Word to celebrate the power of poetry to bring people together, even in times of significant isolation. We have commissioned pairs of Poet Ambassadors – London-based poets from the our Fellowship with other poets from London’s communities – to write new work together and inspire other Londoners to write poems. We welcome submissions from all Londoners, collecting them together on an interactive digital map of London launched in spring 2021. This programme is specifically to encourage the creativity of those who have been worst affected or most compromised by the pandemic across London – people of colour, people from lower socio-economic backgrounds, older people, people with disabilities and those with pre-existing medical conditions.
