The Halli Poetry Project

January 26 @ 3:00 pm - January 28 @ 8:00 pm


The Halli Poetry Project

Want to write but don’t know where to begin? Have you been writing for a while but don’t know where to take your poetry from here? We have an idea for you- spend an entire weekend with fellow poets writing the days away!

Lahe Lahe Halli welcomes applications for its first Poetry Residency to be held on January 26,27,28. They say it takes a village to raise a child – we believe it takes a village to nurture a poet. You will experience three days of workshops, take part in fun activities, get your hands dirty with gardening and cooking and meeting like-minded people. By the end of the workshop, you will have produced at least 10 pieces of your own work. On the last day (January 28), we will throw open the village and will hold a performance of the best poetry that you have written (for which family and friends are welcome).

The Residency is exclusive and limited to 20 people to retain an intimate setting. You can fill the application form here. If selected, you will receive an intimation mail after which you will have to make the payment within five working days.

Apply before 31st December and avail an early bird discount of 20% (Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis.)

Venue: Lahe Lahe Halli, Yelahanka
Date: 26 January (3 pm) to 28 January (5 pm)

About the facilitators: The Residency will be curated by Malcolm Carvalho and Hamsini Hariharan. They have conducted regular poetry readings at Lahe Lahe, Indira Nagar.

Malcolm Carvalho writes poetry and fiction when he is not occupied with his daytime job of a software engineer. His poems have been featured in Reading Hour, Literary Yard, Spark and Muse India. He has also written short stories for Spark and 365tomorrows. He is part of the Bangalore Writers Workshop, and is a regular at weekly poetry meetups at Lahe Lahe in Bengaluru.

Hamsini Hariharan​ researches in foreign policy at The Takshashila Institution. That is her day job. She is a regular at Write Out Loud every Tuesday and has also greatly contributed to Lahe Lahe’s first poetry publication as well as our first Poetical Movement last March. Her poetry generally features around themes like belonging, identity and nostalgia.
