Creative Writing Group

Once again, even though the Creative Writing Group has now closed, I thought you might be interested in the following which was an exercise given to us by the leader, Janet Gibson.

“Found poetry is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from other sources and reframing them as poetry (a literary equivalent of a collage) by making changes in spacing and lines, or by adding or deleting text, thus imparting new meaning. The resulting poem can be defined as either treated: changed in a profound and systematic manner; or untreated: virtually unchanged from the order, syntax and meaning of the poem”.

The following “found poetry” was taken from an evening course prospectus. It’s something you could do yourself just for fun.

Dancing…..
Tells a story.
Devising pieces.
Something about us.
Empowering people.

Dancing….
Songs are important
The joy of movement
Transcends to an audience
The joy of words
Bursts on the scene

Dancing….
Enjoy working
The opportunity to change
Spinning and weaving
Tells a story
Dancing….. Dancing….. Dance all your life!
