So if you didn’t make it to the launch party on Monday you may not know who won. I can mercifully end the suspense now.
From the 42 people who entered the contest on 25th June at SpokenWord, we chose 6 entries. These were the ones that for us gave a fresh twist to the theme – Dreams. The winning poems and authors are:
Imane Guermoudi – Later
Evan Knight – Quiet, You Skeptics
David Leo Sirois – Eclipsed
Rethabile Masilo – There is Music
Karin Narita – Mid-Summer’s Night (A Dream)
Jeanne Simonoff – List Poem: I Dreamt of Her
Thanks to all who entered. If you’re in Paris, you can pick up a copy of THE BASTILLE no.2 from the bookshop Le Monte en l’Air from Friday 26th July, or at The Other Writers’ Group 5pm-7pm this Saturday at Shakespeare and Company, or at SpokenWord on Monday 29th July, or it’ll be on the shelves at Shakespeare and Company from Monday 29th July.
Le Monte en l’Air : 71 rue de Ménilontant, métro Ménilmontant. Open 13h-20h everyday. This is the fantastic bookshop where we had the launch.
If you’re outside Paris and want to get copies – watch this space.
