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.

Poetry in SAND 21

In a video feature for the virtual Lyrikmarkt (poetry fair) at the 2020 poesiefestival berlin, our poetry editors Crista Siglin and Emma Lawson discussed the poetry of SAND 21 during the first months of the coronavirus pandemic, exploring the subjectivity of time and how our daily experience changes our readings of poems.
