Event Description

Callout-

ANTHOLOGY - AFTER GALLIPOLI/ ÇANAKKALE This is a call for poems for a project that will bring Turkish, Australian and New Zealand poets together to respond to the centenary of the Gallipoli campaign of 1915. This tragic offensive led to mutual suffering. One hundred years later, Turks, Australians and New Zealanders find they have much in common. In each case the bloody campaign proved to be nation and myth-making, with powerful implications for a national sense of identity today. The aim of the project is to encourage a conversation across cultures and languages that will culminate in the publication of a bilingual collection of English-language and Turkish-language poems loosely themed around the Gallipoli/ Çanakkale centenary commemorations.

 

Send poems (maximum 2) to all 3 the Australasian editors – Kit Kelen KitKelen@gmail.com,  Robyn Rowland bysea@bigpond.com & Les Wicks leswicks@hotmail.com by April 2 . Turkish poets can contact them for details of contributing to the Turkish component.
