Faber and Faber launches poetry widget

LONDON - Book publisher Faber and Faber has launched a widget and Facebook application that displays a poem each week throughout the year.

The widget, created by digital media company Galactus, can be shared and embedded on social networking sites, profiles and blogs. 

It is available at 52poems.co.uk and was launched to celebrate Faber's 80th birthday.

Faber is hoping the application brings poetry to a new audience, and brings new poetry to regular readers.   

A Faber spokesperson said: "Working with Galactus on 52 Poems has been really rewarding, and the market/user awareness and digital design know-how that they have brought to the project has been truly invaluable."
