आपूर्तिको नाकामा कविताका भाका


राइट टु स्पिक तथा अम्रिकन एम्ब्सीको बुक बुस कार्यक्रमको सहकार्यमा विरगन्जमा spoken word poetry टुर भएको थियो। पुष ३ गते देखि ९ गते सम्म भएको सो टुर, बीरगंजका विभिन्न स्कूल तथा कलेजहरुमा पुग्यो । विरगन्जका युवाहरु सित कविता भन्दै-सुन्दै बिताएको त्यो एक हप्ताको अनुभव ।


Poetry in Extremis


‘Poetry in Extremis’ conducted at Quixote’s Cove (December 3 &4, 2016) was a poetry workshop organized by Word Warriors. In this two day workshop supervised by Eleanor Walsh, participants discussed a selection of poems that focused on speaking against social injustice and discrimination.


Mushaira at Quixote’s Cove


In the three-day workshop, ‘The Art of Ghazal’, organized by Word Warriors (WW) at QC bookshop, we tried to create our own mushaira.


The Folding Poem

In between confusions for writing a response and snickers at the responses written, these creative poets got a chance to not only bond and form friendship among one another but at the end also learnt how in the process of writing what really matters is the process and not the product. While enjoying this fun writing exercise, these four groups named themselves with quirky yet creative names and submitted their Folding Poem. While Samip Dai read the poems aloud to the kids, roars of laughter and giggles filled the class.
