PoetryXCollage, Volume 5


PoetryXCollage, Volume Five


PoetryXCollage is a printed journal of artwork and writing that operates at the intersection of poetry and collage. We are interested in found poetry, blackout poetry, collage poems, haikus, centos, response collages, response poems, word scrambles, concrete poetry, scatter collage poems, and other poems and artwork that inhabit this world.

Each issue presents six movements of work by artists and curators. Page spreads are meant to be free zones of thinking where the contributor has chosen all elements of the layout: font, image place, composition, etc.

Initial volumes are being produced by participants in Kolaj Institute’s Poetry & Collage Residency in March 2022April 2022, and September 2022 under the direction of Christopher Kurts with support from Ric Kasini Kadour and Christopher Byrne.
