承接 2015 年 6 月的“一首诗的时间”计划,新文潮文学社于 2016 年 7 月,再次举办了三十日的写诗活动。这是一个让民众发表诗、阅读诗及进行交流的平台。活动的主题是“生活的每个角落都有诗”,试图捕捉生活中的诗意,探究空间、身体、欲望、语言、体制与社会,从生活的方方面面切入。诗人可按照指定主题、形式或艺术手法进行写作。其中除了包括以分行或分段文字为主的诗,也包括了图像诗。

“Poetry exists in the nook and cranny of everyday life.” This was the theme of a month-long open call, and 《一首诗的时间 2016 》 is the crystallisation of poetic responses to 30 daily prompts.

Out of the community of participants who have gathered online to celebrate the writing and reading of poetry, the editors have selected 104 poems that represent an infinitude of diversity: in these poems, one encounters concepts such as freedom and perspective; places such as coffeeshops and toilets; translations and re-creations out of existing poems; familiar as well as experimental forms. What comes through is the irrepressible energy that animates the imagination and words of individuals who see poetry in the simple ordinary.
