Spikey 58 Poetry Contest


Dear poets,

The first Bullet Pen poetry contest is here. This is in conjunction with and in pleasant memory of The Princess Project Kenya and in honour of the benefits of collaborative writing which include our good friend Stephen Derwent Partington who donated copies of his book to The Princess Project Kenya.

Peace!

Peace!

Peace!

Three times peace!

Peace is the theme of this Spikey 58!
