INKSPILL Writing Activity #2 Found Poetry

Standard

Found poetry is the literary equivalent of collage and although not favoured by all, can produce interesting results that often spark splinter ideas off in your mind. So be sure to have a notebook handy to scribble down all the additional ideas that spring into your head whilst you’re busy finding.

 

FOUND POETRY

It is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from other sources and reframing them as poetry by making changes in spacing and lines, or by adding or deleting text, thus imparting new meaning. © 2016 Wikipedia
