2011 Contest Winner Announcement

In early August, The Found Poetry Review debuted its first annual found poetry contest, where poets were tasked with coming up with a found poem from Elsie Lincoln Benedict’s “How to Analyze People on Sight.” We received many innovative submissions from writers around the country, and we extend our thanks to everyone who took the time to submit.

Found Poetry Prompt: September 11

Next Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, and in the upcoming week, people will be remembering and recounting where they were on September 11, 2001.

This week, write a found poem inspired by a source relating to the 9/11 attacks. We highly recommend the 9/11 narratives hosted online by the Library of Congress as a starting source. Click on one of the links below, then select “View Text” on the resulting page.
