Carol Ann Duffy, professora, dramaturga, poeta escocesa e vencedora do T. S. Eliot Prize, acredita que as contemporâneas formas de escrita podem estar na génese de uma profícua produção poética no futuro. Afirma: «The poem is a form of texting ... it's the original text […] it's a perfecting of a feeling in language – it's a way of saying more with less, just as texting is. We've got to realise that the Facebook generation is the future – and, oddly enough, poetry is the perfect form for them. It's a kind of time capsule – it allows feelings and ideas to travel big distances in a very condensed form». Para ler a reportagem no The Guardian.
