ATG Quirkies: Talk About Your Crowd Sourced Publishing!

This post in the British daily The Guardian reports that “following in the footsteps of Wordsworth and Coleridge and encompassing everything from dirty limericks to love sonnets thousands of visitors to Exmoor have added their poetic contributions to tin boxes, left out for the last three years to entice passersby.

Conceived by the poet Chris Jelley and supported by the Lynmouth Pavilion Project, the venture has been running for the last three summers…  

And word has it that Mr. Jelly is currently “going through more than 6,000 contributions, sifting out the best, to be photographed and published in book form by Fly Catcher Press in October…”
