The First Found Poetry-a-Thon!

The Found Poetry-a-thon is scheduled for the weekend of December 4-6th. AmyFaerie and RobbyGirl will be your co-host for the event. WOOT!

We are having a marathon weekend to “get together” virtually and create Found Poetry. Everyone will participate over the same days and times in each time zone . . . kind of like we were all together for the weekend to play with our art supplies!

Start time (in your time zone) 12:00 pm (noon) on Friday December 04, 2009
End time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Sunday December 06, 2009

Post your cards to the thread and the gallery as you create them. You can trade them or just share them with the group, whatever your inclination. :)

EVERYONE is welcome to come play/visit.



What Is Found Poetry?


To create a “Found” poem, begin with a page of text. This can be a page in a book, an advertisement, brochure, flyer, or anything that’s written text. For this “a-thon” we are working from one page for each poem.

Read through the page you will be working from (must be something you are willing to cut up) and choose words to create your poem or offbeat verse. If you’ve ever played with a magnetic poetry set then you get the concept!
After you’ve chosen your words, cut them out and with your best attempt at keeping them grammatically correct (you can steal letters from other words if you need to add endings such as “s”, “es” or “ing.”)

After you’ve assembled your poem you will collage it to the ATC card you are creating. Some people like to create their art first then find the words but personally I prefer to “write” the poem then create the art to accompany it. You may use any medium to create your cards, they can be collaged or hand drawn but the words do need to be collaged on to your card if you are painting or drawing your backgrounds.

Another fun form of Found Poetry is Blackout Poetry. Choose a paragraph to work from that will fit your ATC then black out (paint over) the words you won’t be using to create your poem. Below are some examples of both types of found poetry.


Don’t hesitate to ask questions in the thread we will do our best to answer them. Have fun, this is low pressure; we aren’t looking for Robert Frost here!

HHC has graciously "lent" us the following info, too!

JUST WHAT IS THIS ART-A-THON?
It’s a marathon create-your-favorite-art weekend, done over the same day and time in each time zone.
It’s kind of like we were all together for the weekend to play with our art supplies and this thread is our play room.
HOW IT WORKS: At 12:00 noon on Friday December 04 (your time zone) start creating art, then upload your lovely creations to your gallery and post to the thread. Continue throughout the weekend. Trading and chatting ensues. At 11:59 on Sunday December 06 (your time zone) you’re done creating art… however you may continue to chat and trade as long as you like.

ARE YOU NEW TO A-THONS?
If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm AmyFaerie or RobbyGirl, or post your questions to the thread. We have a lot of experienced art-a-thoners who are more than willing to help those of you new to this craziness.

HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE: When you find a piece of art you must have, please SEND A PERSONAL MESSAGE (pm) to that person asking for a trade. Please DO NOT post requests for trades to the thread. It can get way too confusing.

Note: If you do make a trade, please be sure to send to your trade partner within two weeks. If you’re running late, communicate!

WANT TO COMPLIMENT AN ARTIST: And you will… remember you can click the You Rock button and leave it there.

HOW TO POST YOUR ART TO THE THREAD:
From your atcsforall.com gallery: It’s easiest to have two windows open. I can create another "tab" and get to my gallery in one and be in my post reply box in the other.
1) Go to your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu that includes “Copy Image Location”.
2) Click on the “Copy Image Location”
3) Go to your post and hit the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard)
4) Paste the address (right click, click paste or Ctrl P) into the window that pops up and hit OK - that puts the code into your post for your picture to show up; (you paste the address from the properties box over the http thingy that shows when you open the "insert image" box)
5) and then you're done.

[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/small/1_SAT_Autumn_Redwing.jpg[/IMG

(leaving the last bracket off the above so you can see how the address will look)

Remember that images from the gallery can be small, medium or large. Find the word small, medium or large or letters s m l in the address and change it to size you want.

From your computer:
1. Click POST REPLY at the bottom of the messages screen. Above the message box, click the paperclip next to the smiley face. Then upload as usual. This will upload your picture as a thumbnail.
2. If you go into the Quick Reply box at the bottom of the messages screen, click GO ADVANCED and you will get the paperclip above the message box.

Sounds like fun. The time difference from OZ, will that be a problem?

RobbyGirl
11-11-2009, 10:45 PM
No problem Grandma Chook, the general rule on the "a-Thons" is everyone starts at 5pm Friday in there own time zone and finish their art by Midnight (again own zone) on Sunday. Any art that is completed on time gets submitted to the thread for trading. It's okay to post pieces that are still drying and can't be scanned yet late.

I stopped by my local library today to return books and discovered they had a "Free" rack of used books. I helped myself to several with the thought of using the pages for this found Poetry a thon. No guilt books to tear into and cut up! I wanted to pass that on to those of you searching for sources to cut words from.

hayward_cs
11-17-2009, 10:18 PM
OOOOOOoooo!!! I NEVER thought of that. I should see when my FOL (friends of the Library) sale is and see if they have a free rack :D
Great Idea, RobbyGirl!

HHC
11-18-2009, 01:30 PM
Our library in Bellingham has a free area year round... you can get some good books and some that are collage or altered book fodder too. We also have a used book store downtown that puts out boxes of free books. I got a fabulous old dictionary (in pieces) and some National Geographic magazines there. May need to go by again, although I really don't need any more fodder. LOL.

Wow didn't even think about the language issue for our overseas friends! The next time we do this I'll plan to have pages ready to send off early to you guys. As for me, I'd love to trade for poems in different languages, especially if you'll be kind enough to translate for me! I'm so impressed by your bilingual skills anyway!

this should be really exciting. I guess I best find me some printed matter to

I'm getting really excited! My husband brought a $1 book home from the library last night and said, "I hope this will work for the Found Poetry-a-thon!" I opened it to a page on which I saw "mumbo-jumbo," "devil's work," "diet Coke," and "hagiography." He got a big smooch for that, because that's pretty much found poetry heaven . . . :D

hayward_cs
12-01-2009, 06:12 PM

This sounds so interesting and lots of fun....but, I think it is beyond my abilities! LOL

I am not sure I could make a poem out of mumbo-jumbo, diet coke, devil's work and whatever that iography thing is! LOL

I may try, just for fun to see what I can do....with LOTS of help and encouragement! LOL

I am not sure I could make a poem out of mumbo-jumbo, diet coke, devil's work and whatever that iography thing is! LOL

Oh, dear. I didn't mean to make this sound all weird and screwy! I might be all weird and screwy, but that's not Found Poetry's fault! LOL!

I'm drawn to words like mumbo-jumbo and hagiography (the biography of a saint), and I think of them as my "core words" - the ones I want to build the poem around. But the poem doesn't happen until I add all of the other words: She, loved, the, his. Your core words could be completely different from mine, but we could both build great poems from the same page of text. How cool is that?!

As long as you are following the basic rules, you can't do it wrong - or at least I hope you can't! If you can, I'll find a way, I'm sure. :goofy:

amyfaerie
12-03-2009, 11:59 AM
Tam, it's all about what you PERSONALLY find in a sheet of text, too. I was really jealous of AnnD's find . . . but I know other found poetry makers would not want that page at all. LOL! Come play with us and give it a shot!

Cheri, I think profanity's fabulous--and that's a fabulous question! If a card like that pops out, then go with it. If someone doesn't want it, they won't ask for it. :) I, however, might. lol.

I'm so freaking excited . . . omg . . . have to get a lot of grading done today so that I can play and be in the thread this coming weekend!

I have about an hour to go before I can start. I figure I'll get some lunch, set some things out, get in the 'zone'. ROFL
It's probably a good thing that I bought 3 books the other night though. 'Cuz I read them, and 2 of them are just really good. So I would feel odd cutting them up, even though they were only $1-ish. The third one SUCKED, majorly. So no qualms there. :laugh:

hello everybody,
so...this is the first time I've attempted 'found poetry'
I let my muse take over and
this is what I came up with.
I'm not exactly sure it's very 'poetic' but my muse said, "do it. ask later"
my question now is...does it qualify?
also, do we have to use the same resource for all my work this weekend?
same book, or same magazine, or does that rule apply to just each ATC?
thanks from the obvious new girl here :)

Cindy, all you have to do is edit the size of the image. I have Microsoft Image Gallery which usually comes on most computers. Edit Image. You can cange the size or on some programs it says "Compress Picture" which makes the file smaller for uploading to the web. Do you have any image/picture editors on your computer??

Hello Everyone,

So I think I am going to attempt a few of these tonight I have not done Found poetry before but I am gonna give it a whirl. It may be tomorrow before I can post any. My nieces are coming tonight and they are geared up to make their own cards, I have a feeling my evening will be spent cleaning glue out of the carpet and glitter off the dog...wish me luck...:swoon:

BTW there are some GREAT cards already!!!!

Hi, gang, I'm signing on. Love what I've seen so far, after a quick glance. I've posted my first 4 cards in my gallery; two I worked on during my lunch hour, so I used what I had at hand in the office.

I can never get the hang of links to the gallery, so here's a preview:

Fabulous art/poetry peoples!

I went to the Friends of the Library Used book sale today - it was half price day - and got a large bag of ephemera for $3.00. Some odd stuff and some interesting... anyway, that's what I'm going to play with this evening. We'll see what happens.

amyfaerie - hubby and I got a Wii a couple of weeks ago. Great fun! We've been playing Rock Band every night together and we also get to play games with our daughter, which she loves.

I'm heading into dreamland for the night. I have mostly all day to play tomorrow, so I hope I can create some more cards!

night!

Tomorrow, I'm locking myself in and making cards 'til I can't see straight.

i'm hoping the Wii gives us something to do together . . . as i'm tired of being a Madden Widow, because that's all he plays on the Playstation. :)

amyfaerie, I was a WoW Widow (World of Warcraft) but he hasn't played once since we got the Wii) It's like a miracle!

Ahh "WOW" my hubby doesn't play but it's definitely a big part of my Son's world! I am a Wind Widow, my husband is a Kite Surfer/Sailor, fortunately it's a fair weather addiction so I'm only widowed for the Summer :P

LOL! I made the poem yesterday, and I was scratching my head trying to think what I could do to illustrate it. So naturally, I figured . . . a mad scientist stepping out on his zombie wife by trying to reanimate a mistress! I mean, at some point the story just writes itself! (Hahaha.)

I have no idea where this stuff comes from. I seriously think that I am going to quit making these 'cuz they just seem to be getting more and more wrong.
I seriously hope that this one doesn't piss people off. If it does, I'll take it down.

Man, I missed some major action while I was away this afternoon! I'm catching up on PMs, then it's bath time for my girl. And hopefully after she's in bed I can squeeze in a few more cards.

There should be an a-thon every weekend, imo!

On a side note, I made my best friend cry today, which makes me feel like an ass. Some things just strike too close for comfort. (She likes to see the things I make, so I showed her some of the cards I made this weekend.)
