Garden Reading


For a workshop for Ministry Street Stories, a nonprofit aiming to inspire kids through creative writing, Burgess Studio developed a lovely new format for mesostic poems (in which a vertical phrase combines with lines of horizontal text). In a workshop at Hoxton Street Monster Supplies, local children in East London developed their mesostic poems, with help from writers and poets. Their creations were then assembled into colorful little garden signs, and displayed in St Mary’s Secret Garden.
