Hashtag Poetry

The hashtag has become the loud hailer of the 21st century. Its ability to gather voices and often bodies into a space of unified action for a cause or against injustice is unprecedented. Local causes become global movements; individual deaths galvanise multiple voices and the clarion call travels at the speed of the fastest data connection. This collection of poetry speaks to the power of hashtags, the individual names and the communal suffering that births them.
