The Bloodaxe Poetry app is a mobile application for iOS and Android created in partnership with the UK poetry publisher Bloodaxe Books. It allows users to read, watch and hear poems by Bloodaxe poets. It also provides information about the poets and allows users to share poems, and create a Favourites list.

This code repository contains the files necessary to populate a Cordova build for the app. The code in the relevant HTML and JS files is clearly commented to assist with adapting the app template to new purposes. It also contains the files for the online interface for updating the app's content, which was built for use by Bloodaxe staff. Details of each can be found in the README files within their respective folders.

All of the poems and images used in the app as used with the permission of Bloodaxe Books. All data, images, artworks and poems that were not granted permission to share in this repository have been removed and replaced by placeholders.

This code repository is part of the PhD project 'Poetry in Digital Media: Investigating the Remediation of Poetry through Critical and Creative Practice' by Peter Hebden, Newcastle University 2021.
