HappenStance Wrapper-Rhyme Challenge

Helena Nelson at Happenstance Press recently launched the International Wrapper-Rhyme Challenge. The idea is simple: write a rhyming poem about a food or beverage on the wrapper itself. All the entries are to be exhibited at StAnza, Scotland’s poetry festival, in 2020. It’s great to find a poetry competition that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and I really enjoyed the playfulness of writing on a box of my favourite peanut Nakd bars. I found it really made me read the wording on the packaging carefully as I used it for inspiration for my poem. I’ll look forward to seeing the final exhibition next year. (Closing date for entries, if you’re interested, is 25th December 2019.)
