This being poetry month, I thought I’d talk about poetry and share some poems with you.
When I was first introduced to the “found poem,” it seemed like plagiarism. My mentor suggested, I cite the original author or write “after….” and the name of the author the original text came from.
The Found Poem is just that – found. Take another’s work, words, phrases, or other, and rephrase or reframe forming it into your own fresh and original poem.
My found poem, “The Friendly Isle,” was originally published in DayBreak many years ago.
