What is an Origami Poems micro-chapbook?
The original poems we present here are arranged on a single sheet of paper and carefully folded, origami-style, into a palm-size, micro-chapbook. These books are yours for the printing, folding, reading, and sharing.
Our advice to every reader is to - Please Recycle to a Friend!
With over eighty poets, we spread these books primarily throughout Rhode Island but world-wide via the web. We made our public debut on Poets.org in their "Poem in a Pocket" feature back in 2009. Since then we've made friends at bookstores, libraries, coffee shops, art centers, and internet readers everywhere.
We've been called an idea with legs by Tom Chandler in the Providence Journal. We hope to travel far with them.
Below are listed poets according to their debut in the Project. Or search for them (alphabetically by first name - we're all on a first name basis) on the Pick a Poet menu.
For a current newsletter, please join our Mailing List (see Menu).
Newer display sites are listed below and Origami Display Locations lists them all - alphabetically. Maintained by volunteers, the sites are 'funded' by the generosity of friends and strangers - why not you?
