Okay, so. For one of my creative writing modules, my next assignment is to put together a publication project.
My idea is to publish a small booklet of poetry - 20 poems for the 20th Century (title subject to change if I think of anything better). Basically it will be a collection of poetry based around significant events that took place in the 20th century.
This is where I need your help. If any of you could submit a poem based on anything important that happened between 1900 and 1999, I would be so
grateful. It doesn't have to be a really well-written poem, just as long as it's mostly obvious what the topic is that would be fine.
If possible, I need submissions within the next couple of weeks - I know this is short notice and I apologise for that. But like I said, the poems don't need to be masterpieces, so even if you can just scribble something out in a day or so, that would be fine.
I'll screen comments so I'm the only one that sees any submissions to start with. If you could also include what name you want printed in the booklet that would be great, so I can give the proper credit.
I hope that all makes sense; if anyone has any questions feel free to drop me a line here/in a private message/on plurk/whatever.
ETA: just for my reference, could you also note down what event you are writing about, as well as the year it took place (if neither of these details are mentioned in the poem's title or the poem itself) please.
Edit 2: For reference: important dates
. Thanks Nella <3
