Cut-up letters and words creating a found poem

De/constructed Poetry Contest

In March 2021, in line with SAND 22’s theme – deconstruction/reconstruction – we invited our readers and friends to construct a poem entirely from words they found around them – digging for book titles, newspaper headlines, food labels, shopping lists, or anything else – and write a poem of 22 words or less using their findings.
