April is National Poetry Month and, never one for sitting back(!), I set myself a challenge of a poem every day. After the first day, I remembered a comment I made to Mike Arnzen last year when I created found poems based on some indie poets’ work. I said I was thinking of creating a found poem from the blurbs of books. Note this is the British context of the blurb being the description on the back of the book – not what I’ve come to realise is regarded as the comment made by another author about said work.
From the 2nd April onwards, I chose four books from my shelves and created a short poem which I posted on twitter, facebook and instagram. Here are the results so far – I’ll update to the full set in a few days time!
