July 2024 Challenge Announcement - Found Poetry

 Happy new month!  We hope you enjoyed our June challenge - we certainly enjoyed seeing all your entries again and thank you for joining in with our challenge!  

This month is all about words and in particular, Found Poems, or Found Poetry.  What is Found Poetry?  Here's a handy definition from Wikipedia:  Found poetry is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from other sources and reframing them by making changes in spacing and lines, or by adding or deleting text, thus imparting new meaning.  A literary collage in other words!   Our Design Team have some great examples of this to share with you this month. 

It is our hope that we can continue to use our word of the year in all of our pages this year just to keep that fresh in our minds, together with the monthly prompts or instead of them. Perhaps work your word of the year into your found poetry!
The choice is yours!

We can't wait to see what you create this month and what you choose to focus on!  Due to changes on Instagram it is harder to see the recent entries on a hashtag, so please also remember to tag us @mtw_challenge so we don't miss your projects.
