There’s a striking image as the prompt for Visual Verse December 2020. It’s by Nigerian artist Oscar Ukonu, who creates all his amazingly photographic work in ballpoint pen. Submit asap, giving yourself just an hour to write a response. The editors will post their favourite responses on the site.
I recommend writing and submitting this weekend (6-8 November 2020), if you want to have a stab at a response to this month’s image.
There’s a new visual prompt up today on Visual Verse. Give yourself an hour to respond in poetry or prose. Deadline, as ever, is 15th of the month.
There’s still time to write and submit a poem in response to this month’s image on Visual Verse. Deadline is 15 Apri 2020. Full details here (scroll down, past ‘About’ section).
Make It Maldon is a one-off event in Maldon, Essex, England. It will run from Saturday 29th to Monday 31st August 2015 and is co-ordinated by the amazing Willow Shepstone, as her university placement project for Nottingham Trent University, where she studies product and furniture design.
I will be giving a free reading of my poetry on Saturday 29th August, at 3pm, and leading a free beginners’ poetry workshop on Sunday 30th, from 2-4pm. Both events will be at the beautiful Hayletts Gallery. The beginners poetry workshop is open to all. We’ll be using the fantastic art (in Hayletts Summer Mixed Exhibition) as our inspiration – and you really don’t have to have any experience to participate. I will be very kind and gentle.
Booking essential, by emailing me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please can you share this, if you are UK-based and have friends/family in Essex? Thank you!
