Magnetic Poetry kit for the internet: Storytelling site Storybird adds poetry app

Magnetic Poetry kit for the internet: Storytelling site Storybird adds poetry app | Metaphors in Music | Scoop.it

"Storybird, the Toronto-based website that lets users add text to professionally created art to tell a story, launched a poetry HTML5 app this week.

 

The idea is somewhat similar to those Magnetic Poetry Kits: Users slide preselected words on top of artwork to create a poem. “The whole process takes less than a minute on your phone or tablet,” Storybird posted on its blog Thursday.

 

Storybird CEO Mark Ury told me that about 20 percent of the works that users created on Storybird were poetry,”so we knew we had demand.”
