Eloise is a British performance poet washed up on the shores of Mumbai.

She enjoys eating and walking and the resounding dissonance that inspires her to live so far from her birthplace.

Do join us next Saturday to see her performance at Poetry social. :-)

We know how tough monsoon has been this year. Like a string of loss was hung on the clouds and it poured adding some unbearable weight to our hearts.

The passing away of Gauri Lankesh has raked some buried questions and the city is still mourning. So, we dedicate this poetry session to all that we lost. Pen it down in your verses and roll the pain. We will share it together!

The theme isn't compulsory and you can write on any subject you want in any language but the writing has to be your own.

We are hosting this event at "BISTRO OUI" cafe at Koramangla.

Please email us on "poetrysocialbengaluru@gmail.com" with your entry to register your slot.

Come, share your poetry, bring your friends and share a cup of coffee too!

For more information, please post in the event or message us on the page.

Hello guys... The session has started, please start posting your poetry in the comment section on this link.

Let your friends know and ask them to participate as well if they have written something about our namma Bengaluru.

Cheers
The vicissitude of the weather reminded us that it is about time we bid a sweet farewell to our first semiannual #KaafiyaMilaao season that was primarily premised on our overwhelming affection toward Poetry and those who did it or have been doing it aesthetically. Didn't we celebrate the vast literary legacy in all its grandeur for last six months that just zoomed past us?!

So here Kaafiya again with its glorious #KaafiyaMilaao is to fete and ritualize Poetry, and create a poetically correct landscape that must verily boast of poems never written or read before this time. As sure as that the world will end not with a bang but a whimper, we would not want our second season to remain a low-key affair and your creativity just a flash in the pan. Write poems and read them aloud to the empathetic world. We are here to give you a shout-out.

And dare you go gentle into that good night!

The structure and the substructure of the next semiannual #KaafiyaMilaao English season will have a prime City as the prompt for each session, and the poems will be constructed around the nitty-gritty of the city, wherein keeping in mind the Historical, Geographical, Cultural, Social, and General aspects of the city. One may incorporate all five the combination of two or more or just any one of the five. For each session, Kaafiya will go into coalition with the Poetry group of that particular city.

Now go, and tinker with the session's prompt.
