Always hunting down new ways to grab people’s interest and collaborate creatively, Lesley-Anne Evans began playing with Flash Poetry on Facebook in January, 2014. Flash Poetry is just another way of popping up, like yarn bombing, or flash mobs! With words.
With an open call out to her Facebook friends, Lesley-Anne invited them all to post their word bits for a set time period, then harvested said words, allowed a theme to emerge, and wrote words and phrases into a new context within a poem, adding poetic lines where appropriate. These poems were then posted back onto Facebook.
Flash Poems now number 7, with the 8th call in progress until midnight tonight.
Flash! Bam! Pow!
