Story

Hi everyone,

As some of you may remember, I raised money for Refuge last November by writing 100 poems in a day.

However, in light of the closures of many vital centres that provided care for victims of domestic violence, I've decided to take up the challenge again, on 15th August. You can find more information on the closures here: http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/aug/03/domestic-violence-refuge-crisis-women-closure-safe-houses?CMP=twt_gu

This time I'm doing things a little differently. I've bulk-bought 100 postcards and will be writing poems on the back of these and photographing and uploading them to http://thetrev.wordpress.com as the day goes on. If you'd like one of these, please say so when donating, or by commenting below the post in wordpress. I'll sort out getting your address in due course.

Like last time, I'd love title suggestions, they'll add extra inspiration for me when paired with postcards. Again, do leave some suggestions when donating!

Please help us spread the word on social media! We'll be using the hashtag #refugepoetry
