Free Verse: The Flarf Collective


Flash must be enabled to see the video player.

The controversial poetry movement Flarf began in 2001 as a small e-mail list composed of writers dedicated to the creation of poems using un-poetic language, often with the aid of Internet search engines (a practice sometimes called Google-sculpting). The Flarf Collective is now 30 members strong, with participants scattered across the United States and Europe. Join us for a special Free Verse Evening of Flarf as four of these poetry provocateursNada Gordon, Sharon Mesmer, K. Silem Mohammed, and Gary Sullivanshare their unique writing procedures.
