Bloom Collection in the Poetry Archive
Welcome to the Exeter Bloom Collection 2021. This collection of poems was specially selected for Bloom: Exeter Phoenix’s Festival of Mental Health Awareness. Poetry has a unique ability to give words to our feelings and emotions, and to act as an emollient in difficult times. This collection features poems chosen for their power to speak to the personal experiences of Bloom festival attendees along the theme of nature and the environment.
