Visual Verse is an online anthology of art and words. We supply a compelling image and invite writers – published or unpublished – to submit a piece in response. There’s a catch: the piece must be no longer than 50-500 words and written within an hour. This is an exercise in seeing, interpreting and writing instinctively.
We initiated and produced the site in collaboration with Mr Pete Lewis (Design) and Preti Taneja (Editorial), and it was launched in November 2013 with the support of some incredible writers and artists, including Andrew Motion,Ali Smith, Cathy Galvin, Mark Garry and Marc Schlossman.
