What is a found poem?
According to poets.org: “Found poems take existing texts and refashion them, reorder them, and present them as poems. The literary equivalent of a collage, found poetry is often made from newspaper articles, street signs, graffiti, speeches, letters, or even other poems.”
Neat! Let’s try one.
Throughout the month of April, which is, of course, National Poetry Month, tweet a line or sentence you like. Be sure to mention @versifyydr and use hashtag #versifyfound. Those tweeting from York County, please also use #YorkPA.
At the end of the month, I’ll choose some or all of the tweeted lines, build a poem out of them, and publish it here on the blog, with a shout-out to everyone who participated.
Now get to tweeting! Poems might not be lost, but they can be found!
