The event was a word-game called Giant Fridge Poetry.
The game was based on the magnetic fridge poetry sets that you can buy in which lots of separate words are printed on magnetic tiles, which you arrange into poems by sticking them to your fridge door.
My version of magnetic fridge poetry was bigger. It wasn’t on a fridge and it wasn’t magnetic!
Instead, I sent people out to collect words from Bangor High Street and make a note of them. I suggested collecting words and phrases from shop signs, overheard conversations or anywhere in the environment.
I then asked them to come back and arrange their random words into “poems” (meaning any sort of writing; it didn’t have to rhyme and it didn’t have to be “good”).
