Hour of Writes is a project dedicated to making sure a moment of inspiration becomes a piece of writing. Members are given a short prompt each week, to which they have an hour to respond in any manner or form they want. The following weekend, each entrant is given the work of three others to mark, and a judge selects the winners.
For last weeks theme, Attack and Receive, Jack Cooper selected a winner and two runners-up. You can read his Editorial and the relevant entries on Hour of Writes, as a registered member or guest.

The Seven Voices project asks seven creatives based in Oxford to respond to a weekly prompt. Each week you can expect to read poetry and prose, listen to striking soundscapes, and watch experimental video art.
Jack will be writing poetry and prose for the duration of the project, which you can follow at sevenvoices.weebly.com. Hover over the Seven Voices menu button, and select TT18 to view the current cohort’s work.
Member Paul Stephenson was one of fifteen poets selected to pair up with artists in other disciplines for the Pistols and Pollinators project from Accident & Emergence.
An exhibition of the resulting work will run from 23-27th May at The Albert. Full details of the event are available on the A&E website.
Great stuff, Paul!
