HashtagPoetry# Available on NetGalley
In HashtagPoetry# Clive Birnie from Burning Eye Books explores the hidden poetry of Twitter. Taking screen grabs of random collations of three or four tweets on an iPhone screen he then redacts and erases them using photo editing apps before applying his distinctive patterns of coloured dots inspired by the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.
Clive will be in residence at StAnza festival, making and posting new poems from Twitter streams relevant to the festival themes or from the Twitter streams of festival attendees – poets and audience alike.
His book is now available to request on NetGalley, so you have something to get your teeth into before the main event!
