Literary Kicks Builds Random 2008 Anthology

pv_2007.jpgThe poetry and literary website Literary Kicks has published poems by readers since 2001–building a strong community of responsive readers as well.

To celebrate the poetry published on the site in 2008, LitKicks created a randomly-generated Action Poetry anthology. Readers can click a button, letting the magical Internet choose a poem for them. It’s an interesting way to surf through large amounts of literary content.

GalleyCat’s randomly-generated selection was “Chick Lit” by sonic nurse. “Fear I’m sounding cliche, like a Billy Joel song in a sad little bar,” wrote the poet, generating response poems and passionate defenses of the Piano Man. Follow this link to find your own poems.
