Sort of following on from yesterday. The SW11 Literary Festival launches later today and this year’s competition is to come up with a ‘slogan for Battersea’.
The best entries will feature in shop windows in Battersea and the overall winner get Waterstone’s voucher and see their slogan used for the next year.
Fortunately my Philistinism has been recognised by the council (perhaps in part because of my involvement with Battersea Poems last year) so I no longer have anything to do with this sort of thing. A good job, because my effort would probably have only been something like “it’s not Clapham, innit.”
