    Found Poetry Swap, mixed media, due May 9th, 2019

    Swap Due Date – Thursday, May 9th, 2019
    Signup/withdraw Date – None; please just communicate
    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Number of Participants – Unlimited
    Media – Mixed Media
    Theme – Found Poetry

    Anyone can be a poet with Found Poetry! There are two basic types of found poetry:
    1. Collage poetry - poetry comprised of words or short phrases cut from various sources and recombined into something new.
    2. Blackout poetry - poetry found within a page of text by highlighting certain words or short phrases, while blacking out or covering the rest.

    Card Guidelines:
    1. Each card must be a standard ATC size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
    2. Each card must be original and unique. Please don’t send in cards that you’ve swapped/traded in the past or plan on replicating for swapping/trading in the future.
    3. Any embellishments must be relatively flat and lightweight.
    4. Please send in only work that you have put thought, time, and effort into. Make sure that you are swapping a card you would be happy to receive.
    5. Please make sure that cards have a sturdy background and earn the name “card.”
    6. Each card must be in an individual plastic sleeve (please no connecting photo album sleeves without also including individual sleeves).
    7. Each card should be labeled with the swap name, your username, your real name, date of creation, and your location.

    Mailing Guidelines:
    1. Please mail cards in a business sized envelope, spreading the cards over the space of the envelope.
    2. If you tape your cards together or onto a sturdy background when mailing, please use an easy-release tape such as painter’s tape or washi tape. I don’t want anyone’s beautiful artwork to be damaged by tape.
    3. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for your return cards.
    4. If you are mailing from the U.S., one Forever stamp should cover the cost of returns.
    5. If you are mailing internationally, please provide one of the following for your returns:
    a. One U.S. Global Forever stamp.
    b. One well-concealed $1 bill.
    c. $1 payment via PayPal.

    *When you are ready to mail your cards, please just private message me for my address. If you have it from an earlier swap, it has not changed.
    *iTraders will be given when cards are received by me.
    *Please note that cards must be received by the due date. No cards and no communication will result in neutral iTrader. You may withdraw any time before the due date.
    *A host card would be greatly appreciated and loved, but is never required.
    *Please make sure to leave an iTrader for your host (me) and You Rocks! for the artists that created your return cards when you receive them.

    A few examples to get you started:

    I think I'll give this a shot; no promises that you'll absolutely LOVE them, though! I've never done it before!

    Lurking for now. I love found poetry ATCs and would love to join your swap, but have several other swaps to complete in a similar time frame. So I will wait to see if I can get some cards done in time - if I can, I will sign up.
