Today, today. Hot damn, today's the day! (The Christmas Story, anyone?) Oh well...It's the 2nd Thursday of the month! Time to post your patchwork poems.
From now until next Thursday, March 20, you are invited to place links to your newly created patchwork poems. Since we used poems from well-known poets, it is probably especially important that we credit our sources! In other words, please let us know the names of the poets whose work you used. And, while you're at it, tell us a little bit about your process. How did you piece together the lines? Cut them all up, put them in a hat and pull one line out at a time? Highlight your favorite lines? Ask your cat for help? Let us know!
Next Thursday, we will again post links to poems of our own that we offer up as fodder for new patchwork poems. To ensure that everyone has enough time to create, I will be closing comments on Tuesday. Try to get your poem in by then so that people have time to gather poems and work!
Stay tuned for a little leprechaun mischief with next week's call for poems. Think green...
If you would like to be listed as a member of patchwork poetry, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! If you've already told me you'd like to be on the list and you're not, remind me! A gentle nudge never hurts.
Thanks for poeming with me!
