battersea

Be part of creating a biography of SW11 written by the people who live, work and visit Battersea. Take the places, people and history of Battersea as your inspiration, but your poem doesn't have to be about SW11, so a poem inspired by Clapham Junction might be about a journey, for example the poem TOURISTS below. BATTERSEA POEMS will be launched at the SW11 Literature Festival, and the best poems will then be selected by a panel led by Apples and Snakes, to be published in a printed anthology.
