Alice Oswald's 'A Conversation with the Wind' appears online | 10-Jun-12

Eight new poems by TS Eliot Award winner Alice Oswald are to be unveiled online between 7th June and 26th July. The Battle for the Winds website, where the poems are appearing, is also offering readers the chance to win a signed and illustrated copy of all eight poems.

The poems form a core part of 'Battle for the Winds', a series of outdoor theatre performances that mark the opening celebrations of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Sailing events, performed in Weymouth and Portland from 26th-28th July.

Typographer Kevin Mount has produced a hand-printed text edition of the poems, laid out to fit into a specially-designed air mail envelope. Three sets, signed by the author, are being given away in the website's competition. Winners will be drawn in August.
