50th anniversary crowdsourced poem

Dan Simpson

University of Kent alumnus Dan Simpson is crowdsourcing a poem for the University of Kent’s 50th anniversary. A crowdsourced poem is created entirely from words submitted by the public, which Dan will then cut up and combine to create a poem by and for the people who took part. That means you!

You can contribute to the poem in many ways: by tweeting to @dansimpsonpoet using #WeAreKentPoem, sending your words by email to 50years@kent.ac.uk, in person with Dan at the 50th Festival, or by filling in one of cards available at the festival on Friday 4 or Saturday 5 September!

The poem will be read out at the gala dinners in Eliot and Rutherford on Saturday 5 September and subsequently shared across our social media channels, in the next edition of the Kent alumni magazine and on www.kent.ac.uk/50.
