We Need Poets!

We’re working with Jaybird Live Literature to plan a large scale poetry commissioning project for Summer and Autumn 2013.

Southbank Centre and Jaybird are looking for poets – one from each London borough – to write a poem about or inspired by their borough. We’re also looking for artists to work with texts to create innovative installations whether they are theatrical, visual, digital or otherwise.

‘If you can project a giant poem in light up the side of a wall, if you can make a poem grow in moss graffiti, if you can send a poem in morse code to search for extra terrestrial life (or similar!) we’d like to hear from you.’ – Jaybird

You can find out more about the project and how to recommend a poet or artist on the Jaybird website.

Recommendations must be received by 18th February…so get thinking!

  1. This looks like fascinating project. Does the poet have to live in a London Borough now? I was born in Lee Green SE12 for the majority of my life and now live in Kent. I have been a published poet since 1970
