In the run up to the 2012 16 Days Campaign against Gender Violence, Prajnya announces ‘Not Silence but Verse: A Call for Poetry’. Send us Send us original, powerful, evocative poems (Haikus or Tankas only!) in English, Hindi or Tamil on the theme‘No Violence, No Silence’ .
All poems that meet the basic criteria (including relevance to the theme) will be featured on a dedicated blog. In addition, a selection of poems will be published in specially-made Origami Poetry books, which we will print and distribute (in limited edition!). Finally, some Chennai-based poets will be invited to read their work at a public reading to be held in Chennai on 29 November.
Take a look at the rules (not that many!) and criteria here: http://prajnya.in/16d12poetrycall.pdf
