The Emergency Poet


Look out for the Emergency Poet on Todmorden Market on Saturday 17th November 11am-5pm


A mix of the serious, the therapeutic and the theatrical, the Emergency Poet offers consultations inside her 1970s ambulance and prescribes poems as cures. There are skulls, jars of eyeballs and other body parts inside the ambulance and in the ‘waiting room’, Nurse Verse dispenses poemcetamols and other poetic pills and treatments from the poetry pharmacy.
