[ about 2014 ]

The poetry calendar project is an ongoing collaboration between poets & visual artists.

The year 2014—an uncalled for order—contains monthly fragmented poems. 12 artists have been assigned to each month. Artists are given enough lines of poetry for all the days. They then order the fragments into a poem & respond visually to each day.

Updated daily, for every rotation the earth makes on its axis, right here on the world wide web. Check back often, refresh, bookmark, share, post, blog, like it, respond to it, take a good look & spread the good word.
