The Poetry Exhibition: The Colour of Poetry welcomes poetry submissions based on a 5 line ‘tanka’ either in a formal or an informal structure. Only one poem per submission. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm March 2.
There is no theme; however the writing needs to be suitable for a hospital environment. Open to disabled writers. It’s free to enter.
Visual artists will use colour to express their emotional response to each poem selected for the exhibition and the two pieces will be exhibited together in the Northern Health and Social Services Trust. It is also hoped that a poetry festival will be developed in conjunction with the opening of the exhibition.
