Exploring the words of truckies and their experiences of the road, the project commissions three truck-driving poets and three professional poets who work in non-trucking industries. Often ignored, repudiated and misunderstood, truckies in their constant travels see more sides to this country and its people than just about anyone else – and we want it into words.
