The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Help Sheffield Libraries create one BIG poem for the city during lockdown.

"We want the bits about Sheffield that mean the most to you. A memory, a place, a person – anything you love about your time in the city. Something you’re proud of, something unusual, something only you might have noticed."

All you need to do to be involved is submit your words – they can be a single word, a single sentence, or a few lines – with the hashtag #SheffieldLuv.

The finished piece will be collated and edited into a poem (or two!) by Writer in Residence Nik Perring, and will be displayed in very special way.
