Contribute to a new collective sound poem for the beginning of the world

10 June 2021

Imagine that we have the chance to begin again. What kind of world would you want to wake up in?

As part of the Writing the Climate residency with New Writing North and Newcastle University, poet Linda France and artist Christo Wallers are inviting contributions for a new collective sound poem, Dawn Chorus.

Dawn Chorus will premiere at Durham Book Festival 2021.

For this new collaborative audio project, you are invited to write, speak and record a few lines or a short verse and send it in to be considered for inclusion in our dawn chorus for the beginning of the world.

You can contribute now, in any language, until 2 August 2021.
