Readathon Mini-Challenge: Find a Poem!
Based on whatever reading you're currently enjoying, jot down some favorite phrases and words and create a found poem. You are welcome to change tenses, add or drop words and mix up the order of the words or phrases.
When ready, type your poem into the comments box of this post (or post a link to an outside site if you prefer to share your poem on your blog or in another medium).
Let us know which book or text your found poem originated from.
This challenge will run for two hours (or until the bells chime, signaling the start of hour nine of the Readathon).
A winner (who will receive a $10 giftcard from an online bookstore retailer of his/her choice) will be selected based on content and how the poem sounds.
Humor is always welcome!
Happy reading and poem finding!
UPDATE: This mini-challenge has now closed. The winner of the $10 gift card is Sam. You can see her found poem here.
Sam, send me an email at s.j.kessel.writes (at) gmail (dot) com and I'll be sure to arrange the book store of your choice sends you your prize.
Thanks to everyone who participated! It was a lot of fun reading your poems!!!!! It was very difficult to choose just one winner (but alas, I lack the funds to allow for you all to win a prize).
