“British tourism is crying out for social media innovation in addition to Facebook competitions, hashtags and video. Kirstie’s #PoetinMotion helps shake up the agenda, and is a brilliant example of how individual ideas can marry a DMO budget and be totally complementary.” – Steve Keenan, Social Travel Britain May 2015
Are you looking for new ways to freshen up your social media? Want to create a bit of a splash in the local press? Whether you are a tourist board or an attraction, a group or an organisation, I can be your official Poet in Residence.
A Poet in Residence is a different, catchy way of capturing your message or promoting your brand. I am available for creative residencies; anything from a few days to longer projects running over several months. I would love to work with you, either collaboratively or to your brief.
Why poetry can work for you
People don’t want to be told how good you or your product is. They want to be inspired. They want to share engaging content and inspire their friends. I provide original content, tailored for social media. A haiku on Twitter? No problem. A sonnet for your blog? Just say the word. I can also provide real world content as wall displays, framed pictures, posters for buses or perhaps a coffee table book for your customers to read.
During a residency I can produce and perform poetry specifically for your project, event, audience or followers. Or I can deliver an after dinner speech or tailored to your audience based on my existing content. Other creative outputs can be delivered live, in real time, or produced post-residency for publication and sharing online. I can also post to your social media platforms during a live takeover or distribute it to our followers both on Poet in Motion and/or Family Adventure Project. I am happy to consider any organisation or attraction for a residency.
