Poems Underwater

My friend Laura is a poet from Cambridge who's been published here and there (notably through a pamphlet of poems on the theme of Herb Robert). She's currently working on a project that involves writing poetry underwater, based around the theme of the mermaid figure. We've been putting the website and Twitter account together over the last week or so and I'm going to be doing some art based around some of the things we look at on the trips to various watery locations around the east of England.

It should be a really good project, as once Laura's finished her poems, we're going to start inviting contributions from poets and artists who want to get involved. The selected contributions will be published in a standalone zine and displayed at an event later in the year.

Do take a look at the website if you're interested in finding out more: www.poemsunderwater.wordpress.com.
