A National #PoetryMonth Announcement

…with a #NMPoetry twist to it, courtesy of Elaine Schwartz, who, with a single email, rescues my my poetry-month-post-a-day plan that almost went off the tracks today. It was one of those days. I hoped tomorrow will not be another one. Until then, enjoy this neat link and the concept moving it. I wonder if A Confederacy of Dunces is on the list too... (yes, it is). Now to share the remix page with an online international book group and cultural coffeehouse.

Poets to Create Found Poetry from Pulitzer Prize Winners

Eighty-five poets from seven countries will create found poetry from the 85 Pulitzer Prize-winning works of fiction as part of Pulitzer Remix, a 2013 National Poetry Month initiativeThe project, a variation on the traditional write a poem a day challenge, is sponsored by the Found Poetry Review, a literary journal dedicated exclusively to publishing found poetry. Each poet will post one poem per day on the project's website  during the month of April, resulting in the creation of more than 2,500 poems by the project's conclusion. More about the project.

Albuquerque poet Karin Bradberry is participating in the Pulitzer Remix. will use the 1986 Pulitzer Prize winning novel Lonesome Dove as her source text to produce one  Lonesome Dove-derived poem per day during the month of April. Follow the project and see the poems your favorite Pulitzer Prize winning novel "produces".
