Found Poetry

Found poetry

Tuesday, Apr. 11, 6:30 pm. In this unique poetry writing class, students will gather language from existing sources like newspapers, magazine articles, cooking recipes and grocery lists, and “collage” those words into new and original poems. Participants will be given instruction on the “found poetry” technique, allowed time to write poems during the workshop, and encouraged to share and discuss their writing with the group.

Sarah Bradley is a freelance writer and creative writing teacher from Connecticut. She has written for various print and online media sources for nearly ten years. Since 2012, she has been teaching creative writing to youth and adults along the shoreline, encouraging writers of all ages to put “pen to paper” and see where their ideas lead. In 2014, she was the recipient of the first place prize in fiction at the Trumbull Arts Festival. Her fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in The Lost Country, The Forge Literary Magazine and Black Fox Literary Magazine. Her nonfiction has been featured at Tribe Magazine and Parent.co.
