Pulitzer Remix by the Day

As most of you know, I'm participating in The Found Poetry Review's Pulitzer Remix in honor of National Poetry month. All of my poems are from John Updike's Rabbit at Rest... every word, different theme (can you figure it out?). I had big plans at the beginning of the month to take part in other activities around the web, too. Well, it's not happening and I'm sorry. I just can't keep up with it all along with my personal life and goals. I have decided to make this a running post for the rest of the month. Each day I will add my remix poem for you to read if you'd like. I hope you enjoy!

My wordpress blog, Bird's-Eye Gemini, contains all my other poems from April.

Great idea, Laurie! I wondered how you were going to keep up with everything, if maybe you had written the 30 Pulitzer poems before the month began. You are still superwoman to me though. Good luck on all the rest, especially personal goals.

Laurie Kolp said...

Thanks, Susan. I feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'm still writing a poem a day, but just not stressing myself over the craziness of it all (which creates a bit of writer's block for me). I can't believe the month's over halfway done.

I don't know how you're doing it as it is. To me, doing found poetry is really time intensive.

Thank you Laurie for sharing these with us~ I too am finding all my blogging to be an extreme Tango like dance~ (mine is A-Z Blogging challenge)
Keep writing on your terms~ :D
You have accomplished a lot!

What a neat idea. Now I remember what the remix is. Updike had some wonderful descriptions in the book of his I read -- Rabbit Run--and you have done a marvelous job with this. Some books really lend themselves to this. I think I will keep my eye open for one to do a series like this from. Thanks.
