In poetry : Partition, Displacement, Borders, and Citizenship

    April is Poetry Month, and it’s a time to celebrate the power of words to move us and transform our understanding of the world. This year, the Partition Museum is proud to welcome poetry submissions in any language, exploring the themes of Partition, migration, displacement, citizenship, and borders. 

    Selected poems will be showcased on our social media platforms, illuminating the diverse voices that make up our global community. Through the emotive power of poetry, we hope to honour the experiences of those impacted by these urgent issues and raise awareness of the ongoing struggles of those affected by borders and displacement.

    We invite you to join us in this celebration of the transformative power of poetry. Let us unite in solidarity and understanding as we listen to the voices of those impacted by these issues, and honour their stories through the beauty and power of language.

    As we begin this month-long celebration of poetry, we present a selection of submissions:
