We’re Open

The editors are proud to announce that The Found Poetry Review is officially open for business. We look forward to reviewing your poetry and photography as we move towards our first submissions deadline on June 1, 2011.

In the interim, we’ll be posting semi-regular updates on this blog with resources and news related to found poetry, as well as the best examples of found poetry and centos curated from the web.
