Given that our #PenShopArt2015 competition is going brilliantly, for National Stationery Week we thought we’d offer some more interactive fun. We will be reaching out to our Twitter followers to help crowdsource a poem over 5 days. The first line of the poem will be tweeted by @ThePenShop on the morning of Monday 27th April with the hashtag #penshoppoem. The challenge each day is for Twitter users to come up with a great next line. The best line of the day (as chosen by us) will be revealed the following morning and the challenge will start afresh. By the end of Friday the crowdsourced sestet (six-line poem) will be completed with the result being formally announced on Monday 4th May. To celebrate the art of writing, entrants will be strongly encouraged to write their lines with pen on paper and tweet a photograph (not forgetting the #penshoppoem hashtag). For those joining in and for outside observers it offers a great opportunity to explore the beauty and individuality of handwriting and help us break away from our keyboards. Don’t forget to follow (https://twitter.com/intent/follow?screen_name=ThePenShop) our Twitter feed so you don’t miss out!
