The Found Poetry Review #1: Summer 2011

The Found Poetry Review is a quarterly online poetry journal celebrating the poetry in the existing and the everyday. We publish found poetry, centos, erasure poems and other forms that incorporate elements of existing texts.

The first issue features found poetry by Christine Pacyk, Howie Good, Jill Crammond, Johnny Chinnici, Christina Burress, Jeanne Shannon, Mark Blaeuer, Clare Kirwan, Andrea J. Dickens, Claire Ferris, Jennifer Saunders, Guy Torrey and Ed Higgins.

The website also includes commonly accepted definitions of found poetry, links to examples of found poetry hosted elsewhere on the web, and guidelines to the fair use of existing texts, more here: About Found Poetry.

The Found Poetry Review is accepting found poetry submissions through September 30, 2011, for its Fall 2011 issue. Guidelines: "Give us your poems made up of lines from newspaper articles, instruction booklets, dictionaries, toothpaste boxes, biographies, Craigslist posts, speeches, other poems and any other text-based source. Only found poems will be considered for publication; original poems, regardless of quality, will not be accepted."
