Lipschtick - A Poetry Oracle

What Is Lipschtick?

Lipschtick is the creation of three poets and a filmmaker from TW Writers. A few months ago, in a small room above a pub in Tunbridge Wells, we agreed that humans love to create meaning, so we set about creating a meaning making machine of our own, using poetry and film.

We were inspired by the myths and stories of the Oracle at Delphi, the riddles of the sphinx and the visual power of Becket's Not I. We were also fascinated by the role of randomness in constructing meaning in our lives. Within this we also wanted to explore the magical exchange between poet and listener.

Ten poets have contributed to this project and if you would like to add to the oracle, please contact us.
