Free Verse Project

Do you know about the "Free Verse Project"?

Inspired by the 2009 National Poetry Month Poster design, the Academy of American Poets invites you to capture and share your own ephemeral bits of verse.

Write lines from a favorite poem on a sandy beach, assemble twigs on a hillside, or chalk the sidewalk. Take a photo before it disappears and post it in the Free Verse group page on Flickr, or on the Academy's Fan Page on Facebook, or email your photo to freeverse@poets.org.

More details here.

While we are on the topic of poems, Booker Prize Winner Ben Okri is publishing a poem on Twitter. One line a day! Read more about the Twitter poem.
