What Is Found Poetry?

Found Poetry is poetry which is formed by taking the words from a pre-existent source, such as a book or newspaper. You could take some of the words, mix them up, or just scribble out all but the words you want to use. A lot of people in this group make their pieces of found poetry very aesthetically pleasing too, but found poetry exists in many forms.

More importantly, it's fun. So try it :)

SUBMISSIONS/FAVES/JOINING/BLOGGING
Howdy fellow Foundarters!

Here is how things stand on the admin front:

  • Submissions:
    Members' submissions are always put to vote. Each piece only needs one vote to go through. Basically, this is just to ensure that no non-Found pieces get through.
  • Join Requests: Anybody can send out a join request, which is subject to democratic vote.
  • Blogs: Anybody can submit to blog, which goes to the vote.


Thank you, and keep submitting/faving/enjoying your time here at #DailyPoetics!

Much love all round,
Luis.
Guys - I have been away for much too long and I see that many beautiful found poetry submissions have expired. Super sad face. If you're reading this, please resubmit and I will shine a beautiful, well deserved light upon your works. Thanks so much.

Hi, just a question I've been wondering - does your group accept text-only found poetry, or strictly the visual type?

We sure do, although we focus more on visual forms.
