The London Poetry Game

Following on from yesterday’s post presenting some of the finest literary mags and journals coming out of the UK, I thought I would share this unique collaborative project: The London Poetry Game.

Poet, Ross Sutherland has written a 26 line poem titled Symphony, presented on screen in more than 15 languages. This is where the game begins… the organisers have put the call out to all Londoners to translate the poem which will be broadcast from the London National Theatre on Sunday July 11.

Using poetry in a public project to bring together people from diverse language backgrounds is a brilliant idea and this Lost Shark would love to see more of it. I know I will be checking into the site in approx 35hours to read the translated poem!
