‘Novel Finds’ is Out There

I am pleased that extracts from my new work Novel Finds is available to read at Stride and International Times. I also posted one on this site a few days ago. These are a sequence of found poems based on the historical timeline of the British novel ‘canon’.

It is such a challenge and such fun to write experimentally – the term will do for now – and especially Found poetry. The rules are self-selected, and can be as broad or narrow as one chooses. I set myself quite specific disciplines and like the tension between the complete randomness on one hand, and the pre-planned, self-imposed control on the other.

from Gulliver’s Travels – Jonathan Swift is here at International Times
