Co-Commission Open Call for Game-based Poetic Work & a Nod to Our Own Cygnet, Helen Bowie

Deadline: 11:59pm GMT on Monday 17th October.
Find the application form here.

Poetry Games is an exhibition of playful and interactive poetic works held at the National Poetry Library. Running from October 20th to January 15th, as part of London Literature Festival, Poetry Games will explore the intersection of game-making and poetry through digital and physical games, and a programme of conversational and workshop events. 

As part of this programme, Playing Poetry and Phoenix Cinema and Art Centre are launching a co-commission for two makers to collaborate on a new piece of game-based poetic work. We are looking for UK-based poets, artists and game-makers with an interest in crossing genre, form and format. We are open to all forms of poetic and ludic creation. Some examples of works that give an idea of what we mean are:

Nested by Orteil
Sweet Mystress by Jon Stone
WORD/PLAY by Helen Bowie
A Tiny Jenga by Astra Papachristodoulou
And I made sure to hold your head sideways by Jenny Jiao Hsia
A lake in America by Rare Animals
