New Lit on the Block :: The Found Poetry Review

The Found Poetry Review is a quarterly online poetry journal “celebrating the poetry in the existing and the everyday.” FPR publishes “found poems, centos, erasure poems and other forms that incorporate elements of existing texts.”

To clarify this to both their readers and writers itnerested in submitting works, FPR includes content with links on the definition of found poetry, examples of found poetry, and found poetry and fair use standards.

The Summer 2011 inaugural issue includes works by Christine Pacyk, Howie Good, Jill Crammond, Johnny Chinnici, Christina Burress, Jeanne Shannon, Mark Blaeuer, Clare Kirwan, Andrea J. Dickens, Claire Ferris, Jennifer Saunders, Guy Torrey, and Ed Higgins.

FPR is accepting submissions via Submishmash for the Fall 2011 issue, deadline September 30, 2011.

FPR is also holding their first contest, in which all contest submissions must be found poems derived from “How to Analyze People on Sight” by Elsie Lincoln Benedict and Ralph Paine Benedict, available as a free e-text through Project Gutenberg. The contest deadline is August 31, 2011.
