Poster poems: Found poetry

…via Billy Mills, an August #Poetry Challenge at the Guardian. Perhaps someone would venture a cut-up or collage from, the ultimate August poem about poets, Alexander Pope's Letter to Dr Arbuthnot. Add images, other media to the words and you have something like Broadsided or mixed media combining graphics and text. Hack, remix, make, share ~ the lexicon of the maker and creative / connected learning movement ~ and a Make for #clmooc. Then there are apps... 

Cut-up or collage, the challenge this month is to concoct something new from other people's words 
One night sometime in the early 1930s a New Jersey doctor left a note for his wife on the door of their fridge. He looked at it again and saw something he hadn't noticed when first writing it down, something that made him write it out anew. The doctor was William Carlos Williams and the note became This is just to say, one of the best-known and most widely discussed "found poems" ever written.

Time for an August @Broadsided Collaboration

at the Picnic, right here on the blog & Facebook page… is where you will find the electronic #Mountainair vector. All too often, I postpone and forget. Tamra Hays is IRL when in town (and if she still vectorizes). But any number can, so

Go forth and Vectorize!
