    Post Found Poetry ATC Swap, Due October 30, 2009

    Swap Title: Found Poetry ATC Swap
    Swap Due Date: Oct. 30
    Signup/withdraw date: Oct. 20
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3 OR 6 for 6
    Number of participants: unlimited


    found poetry ATC swap



    cards by katiev, robbygirl & me

    For this swap, make three or six cards that feature found poetry.

    Usually, artists choose a single page of text from a book, then cut words from that one page and rearrange a series of words to form an interesting or offbeat verse. Here are a few links to inspire . . . but please feel free to ask questions in the thread, too! I find that these exercises can sometimes result in some amazing imagery & unconventional word combinations. i LOVE it!

    a teacher's link explaining found poetry
    foundpoetry.org's blog
    wikipedia's "found poetry" entry
    a found poetry blog at wordpress

    This is a mixed-media & collage swap. And, I do try to swap quality for quality.

    - All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5”
    - All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
    - Please put artist ID, real name, global location & swap name on backs of all ATCs.

    - All cards must be different--no copies or prints.
    - Please only send art that took time and care.
    - No cards should be dependent on stickers or scrapbooking embellishments.

    - Please include username and swap name on all envelopes sent in.
    - International participants--I will cover your butts. And your postage.
    - US Participants--Please include a business-size SASE with stamps = to what it takes to ship your cards to me. Usually, this is not just 44 cents.

    All cards are due in my hands by the due date. Late cards will be returned. Please mail early so they arrive on time. Late cards without notice and no-shows will receive neutral iTraders.

    Please PM me as you prepare to send your cards, just so I know they're coming, or to git my addy. you might want to send cards to my post office box--my home mailbox sometimes is soggy.

    Thank you for considering this swap!

    yes, please! I new thing for me to try, but as a teacher this could easily have "cross-over to work" potential!

    well, I was inspired tonight to start these atc's, even though I have other swaps to do first.

    And I think my poetry has reflected my mood, its a touch on the glass half empty side of life for my usual taste. But, hey! that will teach me for choosing an old history of costume book to cut my words from.

    Ill post up the cards when there all done, still have one to do.
