WORD FROM THE SKY / PETRA WHITE
So Long Bulletin is pleased to learn that the Emerging Writer’s Festival is looking for poetry in all the right places:
‘As part of the Emerging Writers’ Festival, Lego Poetry is a chance for us all to build with words. Lego poetry will be located at the Festival Hub as buckets of words for people to come down and write their own poetry using LEGO bricks that are covered in words (think magnetic poetry, but lego). Poets will then be asked to take a photo of their poem and post it on twitter or facebook or their social media outlet of choice tagged with # legopoetry (so we can find it again). Lego poetry will also be out and about, being written and shared across the whole festival. You can discover it by following the Emerging Writer’s Festival on Foursquare or on Twitter at @legopoetry.’
Next week, fully-emerged poets will be invited to take off their clothes and paint words on each other with their own excrement, as part of a unique opportunity to discover the usually hidden connection between shit and art.
