Poetry, photography & flickr

The Academy of American Poets Free Verse project on Flickr.

flickr 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 to the Free Verse group page on Flickr. Include the source of your lines in the photo caption.

All photos posted by April 15 will be automatically entered in a contest to win the new Poem in Your Pocket Anthology and a commemorative piece of hand-engraved jewelry by San Francisco designer Jeanine Payer. Selected entries will be featured on Poets.org.

    Flickr is really a great way to share photos on the net, the photo resizing feature of Flickr is what i like*;.
