In the spirit of promoting the art of found poetry beyond our four issues per year, we’re launching a series of weekly poetry prompts to get poets writing found poems, erasure poems and centos all year round.
This week’s theme is EXPERIMENTS.
In honor of found poetry — an experimental poetry form — write a found poem related to the idea of experiments. Check out these sample texts/links to get you started, or use a source of your own to come up with this week’s poem.
- Materials given to participants in the Stanford Prison Experiment
- Any text found on the sites aggregated by Selby’s List.
- Wikipedia articles
Write a “experiment”-themed found poem using one of these texts or one of your own, and come back and share your poem in the comments section during the week.
