It's competition time - with a nod to last week’s wonderful IRL WORD! at Attenborough Arts Centre, ft. Rishi Dastidar - and also this week’s #WORDprompt of ‘micropoetry’ (itself inspired by Rishi’s brilliant IRL workshop on the subject)…
Post/tag us into your own original micro-poems - on Facebook or Twitter (@WordLesta), Facebook (search 'WORD!') - or mail them to [email protected]
We’ll pick a ‘favourite’ and its writer will receive this boundary pushing star of a prize - Rishi’s latest book, Saffron Jack (ironically, written as one long narrative poem!)
Praised by everyone from the Guardian, to Dalgit Nagra. Niven Govinden describes it as:
‘A bravura meditation on crown and country, borders, and what it means to belong’
Send us your micro-poems - on this or any theme by May 6th - we'll announce the 'winner' (all things being subjective and all contributions valued) during the week commencing May 9th.
Send us you micros! We’d really love to see, hear or read them - and share Jack (Saffron) #saffronjack
