Subject: Dictionary of Words looking for Poets
I and colleagues are trying to develop a project that would build on
the Dictionary of Words in the Wild (dictionary.mcmaster.ca) and are
looking for people comfortable reviewing poetry. The idea is to set up
an opportunity for poets to work with a graphic designer/programmer to
create poems that use the images of the Dictionary. None of us feel
comfortable assessing the poetry submitted or the portfolio of
previous work of people who might take advantage of this opportunity.
We would appreciate hearing from people who have experience assessing
poetry whether in verse composition courses or in other venues. If you
are interested in being part of a small team that assesses and then
works with poets please contact me.
Thanks in advance,
geoffrey [dot] rockwell [at] ualberta [dot] ca
