He’s still the same corpse we have come to know and love, he’s just growing up and making more friends. So, time to play games with him again!
New call to participate in July’s Exquisite Corpse. In case you don’t know (you wouldn’t be alone…), an exquisite corpse is a collaborative poem made up of lines submitted by different people with no knowledge of what anyone else has submitted. We all submit a line blind. Even I try not to look at the submitted lines until after I’ve written my own line. You can read more about them here.
At the end of the submission period the poem is put together. This is where the tricky magic comes in. Some months the lines go together so well I’d swear all the contributors were psychically linked. Other months are less cohesive and I really have to work at fitting it together.
In the end, I pop the poem onto an image and it gets posted online for the world to admire. I also send the image with poem to everyone who contributed. Everyone is credited in order of their line.
NEW: This time, there is a theme: revolution. Try not to use the actual word, just have it in there somehow. Be creative and have fun!
You can see last month’s poem at Exquisite Corpse | Space and Time Magazine. If you ever lose him and his link, just look under the Table of Contents link on the Space and Time magazine home page.
