Found poems take text and refashion it into a poem, think of it as a collage but with words.
The text can be taken newspapers, street signs, graffiti, letters, books, magazines, songs, overheard conversation and a myriad of other sources that provide the writer with the building blocks of their poems, the words themselves.
Poems written using material found in and around London.
