Thank you to the lovely @s.lyons_ for taking to us about her work and how list poems are a wonderful way of exploring a theme, of making the incongruent – congruent and for helping with the creativity process in bringing a poem to the light. (Catchup on live for the next 24 hours).

This week’s challenge is to write a list poem – by taking your favourite recipe and writing a poem inspired by it or in the style of the recipe. We were honoured to be the first to hear Shay’s poem inspired by roti and chicken curry.

Submit your poems by Friday 27th July for a chance to be featured :

1. Follow @herheartforms & @herheartpoetry

2. Tag #herheartforms

3. Tag @herheartforms on your post

4. Tag #ListHeart and #makeblackoutpoetry on your post


Posts must be your original content. By tagging Her Heart Forms you are giving permission for us to repost your words in the @HerHeartForms template.


All features will be considered for that Challenge’s best in form, with each challenge’s best going through to an annual celebration of ’Her Heart on Best Form’.
