Forms & Features: Found Poetry

Forms and Features: Found Poetry

All experience levels are welcome to a discussion and creative workshop run by Poetry Foundation Library Coordinator Maggie Queeney. In October, we explore found poetry, a form that refashions non-poetic text (newspaper article, instruction manual, dictionary entry, etc.) into poetry through lineation, excision, and collage practices.

The group will read and discuss a wide range of examples. A creative workshop, where participants compose original found poems, will conclude the session. Materials will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring texts that relate to a current creative project.

RSVP to to Register.
