“Sometimes the best poems aren’t written, they’re discovered,” asserts host Derek Crofut, who featured last week. He will be running a found poetry workshop on May 18th. “We’ll explore the accidentally poetic sources of normally mundane texts, with the ambitions of stringing together snips of image and phrase to create something beautiful. Source texts will be provided. Bring a pair of scissors and an open mind,” Derek says.
Due to “copyright considerations” The Found Poem Review only considers poem submissions that contain information about the source materials used to create the poem so note your sources!
