Are you a visual poet or visual poetry enthusiast and would like to get involved with Poem Atlas? Connect with us on social media to be the first to know about our next exciting venture!


Refraction, the change in direction of a wave passing from one medium to another, is a fine metaphor for poets keen to experiment and hop between practices to explore the boundaries of language. This exhibition of visual poetry celebrates young talent as well as the experimental poetry tradition. Each poet adds their own interpretation of this theme using their own unique poetic voice. With thanks to the editors of Streetcake, Nikki Dudley and Trini Decombe, for assisting in the organisation of this event.


The exhibition features the brilliant Streetcake winners and finalists  Paul  and Karen Sandhu.

Curated by Astra Papachristodoulou 

This online exhibition celebrates the 8 young winners and finalists of the Streetcake Experimental Writing Prize 2020 in the poetry division. The winners were selected by judges Sascha Akhtar and Astra Papachristodoulou. You can buy a copy of Streetcake Prize Winners' anthology here.
