Yarn is a crowd-sourced interactive poem curated by local community artist Kirsty Gbasai. The concept of Yarn is to bring together the people of Manchester, united in writing a poem that will document the current creativity of the cities’ residents, whilst generating a unique piece of writing.

The poem is being created online one sentence at a time, with each contributor creating a sentence inspired by the previous sentence.

All residents of Manchester, from all walks of life are encouraged to take part, whether you consider yourself a practised writer, a fan of poetry or none of the above. The result will be an organic, diverse, unique piece of writing, created solely by people living in Manchester, representing the vibrancy of our city.

*Sentence Submissions are now closed and the poem is currently being compiled.*
