Simply visiting the homes or haunts of famous writers can be a moving experience for their fans.

But imagine walking the grounds and hearing their words — in their own voices, no less.

That’s what fans of Irish poet Seamus Heaney will be able to enjoy, thanks to a project led by his widow.

Literary Hub reports that “Open Ground,” a project launched through the Seamus Heaney HomePlace, will take visitors to five locations that held special significance to the poet.

At Bellaghy, Magherafelt, Toome, Moyola, and The Strand at Lough Beg, there will be interpretation panels for visitors to read and listening posts that play the poems that the places inspired.
