TRANSATLANTIC Poetry (2013-2018) was a global poetry movement founded by Robert Peake which brought poets from the US, UK, Europe and beyond together for live online readings and conversations. With the help of notable partners, it reached a diverse audience and transformed the way people experienced poetry in the twenty-first century.
