July 21, 2011 - PRLog -- Bethesda, MD:  The Found Poetry Review, the only active literary magazine devoted exclusively to publishing found poetry, announces the publication of its debut Summer 2011 issue, available at The mission of the magazine is to celebrate the poetry in the existing and everyday.

Found poetry is the literary equivalent of a collage, where words, phrases and lines from existing texts are refashioned into new poems. The genre includes centos, erasure poetry, cut-up poetry and other textual recombinations.

“We are pleased to provide a dedicated venue for both readers and writers of found poetry,” said Jenni B. Baker, the magazine’s editor-in-chief. “Our debut issue demonstrates the variety of texts which can give life to new poetry, as well as the talents of poets working in the genre.”

The magazine’s Summer 2011 issues features innovative poetry from a variety of sources, such as Wonder Woman comics, Marcel Duchamp painting titles, questions posed to the ChaCha search engine, and traditional works of poetry and literature.  

Poets featured in the inaugural issue of The Found Poetry Review range from MFA students to experienced poets, and reside both in the United States and abroad. Contributors include Mark Blaeuer, Christina Burress, Johnny Chinnici, Jill Crammond, Andrea Janelle Dickens, Claire Ferris, Howie Good, Ed Higgins, Clare Kirwan, Christine Pacyk, Jennifer Saunders, Jeanne Shannon and Guy Torrey.

The magazine is now accepting submissions of found poetry for its Fall 2011 edition through September 30. Complete submission information is available on the magazine’s website at
