Greetings Found Poetry Review followers —

We have two exciting pieces of news to share with you.

We welcome submissions of book reviews and essays (500-1,000 words) related to found poetry through September 9, 2012. Before submitting, please send us an inquiry about your proposed book/topic and any related writing samples to help us get a feel of your style.
