My place of employment, The University Press of North Georgia, is hosting a really neato event that we’re calling The Crowdsourced Poetry Project. Basically, we’re supplying the first line of a poem (a Sestina) and are leaving it up to the masses to come up with the remaining words, line by line. We started this week with the beginning line of “I began to ask myself the questions,” posted it on our facebook page, and are now soliciting submissions for the second line. Got an idea for a line? Head on over to Facebook and “Like” The University Press of North Georgia, and simply submit your proposed poetry passage by posting a comment on our Crowdsourced Poetry post.
To read more about the project itself (and find out what a Sestina actually is), check out the the UPNG post “A Sestina by Everyone.”
