A book of poems created in a "blind" collaborative effort on Facebook. Lines are submitted to the project coordinator via private Facebook message, and added to the poem in the order they arrive. Poets do not reveal which lines are theirs, nor ask other group members which lines they submitted, which adds to the magic and mystery of the project. The poems are created without a theme, and with no communication between the poets, except for group discussion after the poems are published on the group page. Most of the poets have never met, and live in various areas of the U.S., Canada and other countries.
I am a multi-medium artist/tinker who lives full time on an island. I am also the coordinator of a group of single-line poets called the Sunday Random Line Poetry Group, who create blind collective group poems weekly.
