Every month, we arrange the way we play poetry around a particular theme. You’ll see it in the artful content from our contributing writers, hear it in our inspiring thematic Spotify playlists, put your hands on it in the Monday morning poetry prompts, or experience it in the daily offerings from Every Day Poems. Here are our favorites from 2012.
Casting a Line for Surrealist Poetry
Herds of bison, bears with missing legs, and the Osborne Bridge. Matthew Kreider casts a line into a river of black coffee in the name of surrealist poetry.
November Surrealism: The Treachery of Images
Surrealists attempted, by way of their art, to juxtapose different realities so as to signify a new one. Seth Haines has a new poetry prompt challenging you to create your own new reality.
November Surrealism Poetry Prompt–A Musical Playlist
This month’s theme at Tweetspeak is surrealism, and we’re composing poems that play with the theme. Seth Haines has a brand new surrealism-themed musical playlist to help us create some surrealist poetry by playing with juxtapositions and free associations.
