Earlier this summer, we put out an open call for proposals for a micro commission, a short digital piece of work. We were delighted by the response, proposals arrived in their dozens, and what this said about the determination to be creative with poetry despite the pandemic and lockdown, but it gave us some hard decisions to make, and to help with this, we eventually offered three micro commissions, all of which have been delivered to us this week.
It's always exciting to see the outcome from commissions. We hope when you see them, you'll understand why we've been quite blown away by the power and the poetry in these three pieces of work, each of them very different, but each engaging with issues which have affected us all over the past months. So, our huge thanks to Desree, Jinling Wu and Catherine Wilson, do please share the word about these great pieces of poetry work. We’ll now introduce them one at a time in successive posts.
