Three Word Poems website

I’m very proud to announce the recent launch of www.threewordpoems.com. The site acts as a repository and online gallery for short poems, with accompanying photographs. Anyone can join, for free, to share their works.

I build the site from scratch, based on some beermat plans made with a friend at the tail end of a rather fine house party. Excuse the mess. We’ll be very grateful for any contributions to the site so please sign up and add your own. The focus of the project is on community art, guerilla art, the use of public space as temporary art gallery. Your words count, but we’re really hoping people draw on the original spirit of the thing with very public displays of creativity.
