Two members of Upper V, Anoushka and Maddie, make a strong appearance on the Royal Society of Literature’s Write Across London Poetry Map with their poetic contribution, ‘War of the Words’. The poem is definitely a battle with Anoushka and Maddie taking it in turns to write alternate verses!
The Write Across London Poetry Map was launched in July of this year and, as the RSL site states, showcases ‘the creativity of Londoners’ and celebrates, ‘the power of poetry to bring us together in times of isolation’. The website goes on to say, ‘In April 2020, the Museum of London put out an open call for submissions of both objects and first-hand experiences to reflect Londoners’ lives during the COVID-19 pandemic and received a huge number of poems. Inspired by this, we launched Write Across London to create a poetic snapshot of the city at an historic moment in its life.’
So far, the RSL has collected 60 poems which can be read on the map on their website.
