Open for submissions based on the unlocking creativity project artists’ prompts. March 15th – 31st 2021.
Remember how we pondered on finding our muse in these dark times? How for some of us, lockdown deadened our creativity which had an impact on our wellbeing – home schooling gave no head space or time to write, and working from home gave us back ache.
We’re now inviting you to submit your poetic responses to this series of conversations, artwork and dialogues from a whole host of poets, editors and artists. I am so grateful to them for their generosity. How amazing are poets, editors and artist?! What I have learnt from this is how supportive people in the poetry community are, sending out our work is hard, and rejections are harder. What is wonderful is that everyone who has been part of this project has given their time and words and energy for free so each can create something new. Write better. Write more. I can’t thank them enough. Watch out for Helen Ivory next Friday. We are all eager to read your work. The guidelines are:
Submit one poem based on a piece of artwork from the Creativity in Lockdown series. Include the name of the artwork and artist.
