Sunday, every Sunday, let's have a community picnic. It's probably been a long week, and it's lovely to have a few minutes to sit back and relax and enjoy some good conversation in a less formal space. Feel free to bring something for the Picnic Basket - a poem you liked this week, a thought you had or something you experienced, or even something completely unrelated to poetry whatsoever that you just feel like sharing. Just take a moment to say hello, and maybe have a bite to eat; no one is going anywhere fast, and the shade promises some relief from the everyday heat. Let’s get to know each other a bit better, here under the branches of the poet’s tree.

[community profile] poetree is affiliating with the Pod Together Challenge again this year. Stay tuned for another round of related Climbing the Poet's Tree challenges, and sign up now if you're intrigued — today is final day for individual and group signups.

Some things to consider if you're hesitating:

  • There's no penalty for dropping out if you need to (this is what pinch-hitters are for), so what do you have to lose if you sign up and see how far you can get by the June 22nd check in?

  • The sheer diversity of Yuletide fandoms reminds us that just about anything can be used as inspiration for a transformative work. From television commercials to YouTube videos, from badass women in history to anthropomorphized academia, your imagination's the primary limit.

  • If you find that 1k+ word count intimidating regardless of whether you approach it as one poem or many, why work alone? Comment on this post to find one or more collaborators to write poetry with for the challenge. You can divide the word count and multiply your fun.

Via comm member [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith, [community profile] allbingo is hosting a Spring and Autumn Fanworks Fest. Rules and public card are up now. Posting will run April 1-30.
For the month of April, I thought we could celebrate Spring (in the Northern hemisphere) and Autumn (in the Southern hemisphere) by creating fanworks and/or original works like poetry, podfics (especially of poems), art, meta, vids, icons, craft, picspam, recs list (especially of works other than fan/origfic).

Hi! Welcome to day four of the [community profile] pt_lightning tie-in week at [community profile] poetree!

Today we wanted to give you a glimpse into the collaborative process. We invited fanwork creators who have participated in podficcer-writer collaborations before to reflect about their experiences by responding to the following questions. Below, in their own words, are their accounts of collaborating: why they chose to try it, what it was like to do, how they did it, and what advice they have for people venturing into a collaboration for the first time.

If you'd like to share your own experiences, please feel encouraged to speak up in the comments!

N.B. Emphasis added to a non-exhaustive sampling of awesome quotes throughout. —J.J.



1: Why do you collaborate with a writer or podficcer? What do you enjoy about the process? How do you find it different than your creative process when you're not collaborating? )

2: Could you share one or two of your favorite experiences while collaborating? )

3: In your experience, what's unique about a collaboration between a podficcer and a writer? What kinds of different (and overlapping!) expertise can they bring to the table, and how can they enrich each other's creative process? )

4: What tools or processes do you find useful for collaboration? Are there any in particular you would recommend to people collaborating in podficcer-writer partnerships? )

5: What one thing would you tell people embarking on a podficcer-writer collaborative project for the first time? )


You can explore more reflections on writer-podficcer collaborative processes in the comments of the pod_together 2011 wrap-up post and the pod-aware posts linked at the Author/Podficcer Relationship Round-Up (2011) and the Collaboration! Round-Up (2012).

If you are intrigued by the possibility of a [community profile] pt_lightning poetry project but aren't sure where to start, this is the post for you!

Last summer, the POETREE community hosted a two-week icebreaker for Pod Together 2013. Like [community profile] pod_together, Pod Together Lightning is a transformative works collaboration challenge for writers and podficcers, or in the case of poetry, poets of any experience level and performers. Poets write poems specifically to be performed, and performers record audio versions of their performances. The 'Lightning' aspect of [community profile] pt_lightning makes it especially accessible for incorporating poetry, in that the works produced can be quite short (100 words minimum).

POETREE's archives offer a number of handy posts for the aspiring poetry-inclined participant. Never written a poem in your life? Try [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith's post 'You Can Write a Free-Verse Poem'. Writing with performance in mind new territory for you? Check out [personal profile] cadenzamuse's posts on Atlanta slam poetry for insights, examples & exercises to get yourself started. (We especially recommend 'Become a slam poet in five steps', by Gayle Danley — scroll up for video.) Recording poetry not your usual cup of tea? [personal profile] luzula has a pitch you should hear at Recording poetry: why does it appeal to me? (Her other posts on the pleasures of poetry read aloud are also a delight.)


Let's get the ball rolling with a little game... )
