English PEN is delighted to publish the e-Book versions of In A Parallel Universe and other stories, the anthology of winning poetry and prose from our fourth annual prison writing competion.
The e-book is available in Kindle or EPUB formats and features a foreword by award-winning author Meg Rosoff, who judged the competition.
In A Parallel Universe was launched earlier this year with an evening of debate and poetry with leading writers, prisoners’ rights advocates, and current and former prison staff.
[WINNER: Poetry] In A Parallel Universe by Gareth Kerr
In a parallel universe:
I found the chimps that typed out the complete works of Shakespeare,
it was infinitely strange.
Gave Schrodinger’s cat a saucer of milk, it drank the lot and ignored it.
Flew from a black hole, eyes shielded from the glare.
Met myself and argued.
