Words, Words, words

Read All About the Fib. First introduced at the 2009 London Word Festival

"London Word Festival is a pioneering, annual celebration of words, text and language; daring in its approach to cross-artform programming, commissioning new work and exploring non-traditional spaces."

"MATH + POETRY = THE FIB

Based, like many good things, on the Fibonacci Sequence, The Fib is a poetic form with a strict formal syllable structure, a little bit like a Haiku. The number of syllables on each line follows the classic mathematical sequence, so that the number of syllables in the next line is found by adding the two previous ones together. Like so:

1
1
2
3
5
8
