where you find it

December 10, 2019

Rich Maschner, a fellow participant in the August Poetry Postcard Fest, posted this wonderful found-cork poem on Facebook, reminding us that it has been a while since we posted about found poetry.

Much missed since it ceased publication in 2016, The Found Poetry Review is still available online. If you’re new to found poetry or looking for ways to spark your next project, have a look at the Resources pages.

UNLOST is a journal of found poetry and art.

Air Salt: A Trauma Mémoire as a Result of the Fall (University of Calgary Press) is a new book by Ian Kinney that uses a variety of found materials to comprehend and recover from a seven-story fall.

See Double Press has published a number of exquisite books of erasure poetry by Mary Ruefle, Lia Purpura, and Lawrence Sutin.

digital found poem is a “random poetic text generator.”

Enjoy.

(And by the way, it may only be December, but signups are open for the 2020 August Poetry Postcard Fest.)
