Let's send "Bollocks to Brexit: an Anthology of Poems and Short Fiction" to all MPs, the Lords and MEPs .

Brexit has polarised the country and led to the normalisation of xenophobia, Islamophobia and hate crimes.  

Maybe poetry can heal the nation?

Let's find out.

Let's raise funds and send a copy of Bollocks to Brexit: an Anthology of Poems and Short Fiction to all Members of Parliament and the Lords and to all Members of the European Parliament so that they each get a copy of the anthology.

The anthology came out of a call for submissions that asked writers to submit poems and short fiction on the theme, "Bollocks to Brexit". 

The response was phenomenal.

The selection in Bollocks to Brexit is based on how the featured poems and short fiction respond to the theme, how they come across when read silently and out loud, and how they speak to others in the anthology.

Any funds raised over and above what is required to send copies of the anthology to the MPs, Lords and MEPs will be donated to efforts to set up the East Midlands Poetry Library.

Got an idea like this?

Our crowd has raised over £60 million for bright ideas and good causes.
