This icebreaker was originally intended to be a series of interview excerpts, but due to time constraints the admins are opening it up as a set of questions for discussion instead. Please feel free to join in regardless of whether you are or have ever been signed up for the [community profile] pod_together challenge, let alone a poetry project for this year.


Ever collaborated with someone else on a creative project? Share one or two of your favorite stories about collaborating - what surprised you? challenged you? delighted you?

Which do you think has a bigger impact on what it's like to collaborate with someone: the type of collaboration or the person you're collaborating with?

What tools / media do you find most useful for collaboration? Are there any in particular you would recommend to people attempting to collaborate on text or audio?

What's different about a writer-performer style collaboration versus, say, a writer-writer collaboration or a writer-artist collaboration? What kinds of expertise might a performer bring to the table, and what are ways writers might take advantage of that expertise into their writing process?

And bonus, just because:

What's the difference between between collaborating with a creator who works in a different medium than you and working with a beta or a cheerleader?

While this icebreaker is designed for Pod Together 2013 participants, everyone is welcome to play regardless of whether they're signed up for the challenge, let alone involved with a poetry project.

If you're trying to get at the heart of an idea, there's nothing like articulating it as a haiku to distill it down to its essence. And if you can do it with dissertations, you can do it with anything.

So! Your mini challenge, should you chose to accept it, is to brainstorm in haiku. Got a premise or plot bunny you're considering? Tell us about in haiku. Got more than one? Give each its own haiku. Partway through the project or already done? Tell us the haiku version anyway.

And yes, by all means, cheer each other on when you see something you want to give props to! (And bonus if you do it in haiku.)

Adapted from dingsi's FONSFAQ posts

FONSFAQ stands for "Frequently (Or Not So Frequently) Asked Questions" (about a particular topic). Someone hosts a topic, preferably one per entry, and then in comments people can ask - i.e. leave prompts - or claim some issue relating to the topic that they have always wanted to explain/write about. The host then collects the links to all essays that people have written in reply to the prompts and everybody has a lot to read and learn! [personal profile] dingsi maintains the master list of FONSFAQs to date.

For the purposes of this FONSFAQ, a 'long' poem is a thousand words or more, and serial poetry involves two or more related poems.

Leave a comment with your inquiry or, if you already have a topic in mind you'd like to write about, mention that. Serious or funny, fannish or non-fandom, broad or specific, things you've always wondered about or wish more people knew...
Go through the prompts and when you think you can claim one, reply to it (i.e. sign up).
To make things easier, please use the words "prompt" or "taken" in the subject line of your comment!

ETA: if you would like to respond to a prompt that has already been claimed, please continue the conversation by responding to the answer(s).

As we belatedly kick off our parallel icebreaker week here at POETREE, let's start with some introductions from everyone, [community profile] pod_together participants and general members of the [community profile] poetree community alike.

Please take a moment to comment on the following:

  1. Your preferred name(s) and pronouns — how would you like people to refer to you?

  2. Are you new to the POETREE community and/or the Pod Together challenge? Do you have any questions, comments, concerns, observations, exaltations or laminations you'd like to share on either front?

  3. Did you sign up for the Pod Together 2013 challenge? If yes, in what capacity, and with whom will you be collaborating? If no, would you have any interest in acting as a beta or a cheerleader for one or more of the projects?

  4. If you signed up for Pod Together this year, do you know what type of work your group will be creating yet? If yes, please share! If not yet, would you consider doing a poetry project of some kind? Why or why not?

  5. Have you ever read a 1k+ poem or poem series? Have you ever read fannish ones? Please share the most memorable - the good, the bad, and the mind-blowing - in preparation for tomorrow's FONSFAQ meme.

As part of our collaboration with this year's Pod Together challenge, this week POETREE is hosting a parallel two-week icebreaker focusing on helping people of all skill levels warm up their creative juices, get acquainted with the resources [community profile] poetree has to offer, and get oriented re: the challenges and pleasures unique to creating poetry rather than prose for such a challenge.

We hope all of you, [community profile] pod_together participants and the broader [community profile] poetree community alike, have fun with what we have planned.

This week's schedule behind the cut )
