Find words. They can be from a book, a magazine, a letter, a shopping list. Any source will do!
Cut out the words or phrases that you love from any of the sources.
Put them in a hat, a bowl, a bag, or anything that will hold them.
Pick out the cut-up words or phrases at random. Place them in your poem. It may not mean anything. It may be the most profound thing that you have ever picked out of a hat. Try it a few times and see what you get. Play with different words, different phrases, different sources.
Send us your best cut-up poems to include in our gallery.
The internet is also full of words. Feel free to copy and paste from your favourite source into a word document. Randomise them in any way you see fit. Close your eyes and paste them in different order. Roll dice to arrange them. Experiment with ways of combining them.
