The Book of Odd and Invented Forms

What a wonderful project AND a wonderful opportunity for poets out there. Lewis Turco (The Book of Forms) has nearly finished work on his new anthology, The Book of Of Odd and Invented Forms. I thought I had heard of some odd and invented forms….but clearly, I was only seeing the tip of that iceberg.  Sure, I’ve heard of the “found poem,” the “paradelle,” and even the “terzanelle.” Ever heard of the “descort?” How about the “nasher?”

Anyhow, he’s pitching the book to publishers, but still looking for some exemplar poems to complete the collection.  Have a look here at his call for examples and table of contents.  I can’t wait to get my hands on this book!
