A brief shout out to Found Poetry Review for their excellent outreach to the “masses” to inspire, inform, demystify and teach the art of experimental poetry. I was notified recently that a poem of mine has been selected as an honorable mention winner in this year’s experimental category by the Oregon Poetry Association. It’s a piece I wrote last year during FPR’s April Poetry Month “Oulipo” series.
You just never know until you try! And try and try again.
The poem is titled “Cried the Fox” and I’ll post it after it’s been officially published. Meanwhile, check out Found Poetry Review’s great poetry month prompts here on Twitter: https://twitter.com/foundpoetryrev Follow #IMPROMPTU and #NaMoPo
