Clare Roberts, a postgraduate student at the University of Gloucestershire, is putting out a call for writers to help with her ‘Personalised Poetry and Flash Fiction’ research project.

The project is a website for people to commission poems or short stories for friends and loved ones on birthdays and anniversaries, etc.

She is researching the idea for her MA in Creative and Critical Writing at the University of Gloucestershire and would like to hear from poets and short story writers who would be willing to write brief pieces based on clients’ answers to a questionnaire, a few photos, and perhaps a short phone call.

She is currently trialing the idea, so would also be grateful for feedback from writers.

If you are interested in taking part, please contact Clare Roberts on or 07946 703729.
