A mesostic poetry project for the Ministry of Stories – a charity that aims to inspire young people through creative writing. Mesostic poems have one word running downwards, (usually the title) and each line has to intersect it. During a week long workshop in St Mary’s Secret Garden in east London the children wrote their poems, and once complete the poems were submitted to us for installation. We were clear that we wanted to express the specific nature of a mesostic poem – that everything revolves around the title.
