How to take part – NOW CLOSED!

We’ve stopped taking contributions for this project! It was open until the end of StAnza Poetry Festival on 14 March 2021.

If you’ve spent some of the weeks and months of lockdown (any of them!) mending something that you thought was past saving, or writing down your thoughts about how you’ve come to realise the importance of ‘making new’, please email Fife Contemporary:

  • a poem of up to 20 lines, OR
  • up to 3 images of your renewed object with up to 100 words of description

Please put Make it New in the subject line of your email.

StAnza Poetry Festival 2021 runs from 6-14 March 2021, but Resolve to Make it New will be live by late January, remaining on the website after the end of the festival. Please send in your poem or images/text as soon as you can! We’ll continue to add them until the festival begins.
