The art of found poetry revolves around making new meaning from texts that already exist. Whether through erasures of political texts, the recombination of existing poetic lines, or the echo of the old incorporated into a new form, found poetry offers us the chance to examine the words around us for new and nuanced meaning. In this class, we’ll learn about the history of found poetry, examine and practice three found poetry forms (erasures, centos, and golden shovels), and share our discoveries with our fellow writers. Examples of each form will be provided, and generative exercises will be incorporated.
