In 2009, The Sun Herald asked us to collect a few poems from our archive to feature in their "Extra" section over the Summer. The response was so great they asked for more, and the project ran for almost two years, week in week out. We published nearly 100 poets, many of whom were new Red Room poets, some of them first time publishers
We published talented school students as well as participants from our Unlocked project, as well as poets of all styles. Many of the poems were later picked up for publication in other anthologies.
You can find the poems as they appeared in the paper in our Media Centre.
