About PoMoSco — PoMoSco

About PoMoSco — PoMoSco | Beyond the Stacks | Scoop.it
PoMoSco — short for Poetry Month Scouts — is the Found Poetry Review’s 2015 National Poetry Month project. This April, 213 poets representing 43 states and 12 countries are joining together as a troop to earn digital merit badges for completing experimental and found poetry prompts.

Poetry prompts are divided into five categories: remixing, erasure, out and about, conceptual and chance operation  corresponding to their generation method. Each category offers six distinct badges that can be earned. Badges vary in level of difficulty — some may be completed in less than an hour and within one’s home, while others require additional time, interacting with the public and learning to use new software. Poets choose their own source texts from which to craft their poems.

Poets participating in PoMoSco demonstrate a willingness to experiment and write outside of their comfort zone. While not every poem they produced this month will be publication-worthy,  our poets end the month with some strong starts and a new set of tools to which they can turn to as they continue their career as a writer.
