Most people pick up The Salt Lake Tribune and see the news.
This month, Trish Hopkinson picks up the Tribune and sees poetry.
Hopkinson is posting her work on her blog.
"Oulipo constraints provide poets a chance to break free from the restrictions and challenges they face in their everyday writing practices," said Jenni B. Baker, editor-in-chief of the Found Poetry Review, in a statement. "We're encouraging writers to be bold, take risks and write about topics they normally wouldn't touch."
Hopkinson is using the Tribune's pages and website for her source text.
"I love words and there's something very enjoyable and fascinating to read and pick out the ones that catch my eye for use in a new work. It's exciting to see what comes of the exercise," Hopkinson said in a statement.
