On-Site Poetry is site specific poetry.
Inspiration for content and form are derived from a specific spot.
On-Site Poetry started out as 'Plekgedichten'.
More on 'Plekgedichten' |||||
The very first On-Site Poem was 'Mussenmanieren' (2007).
More on 'Mussenmanieren' (manners of the sparrow) |||||
On-Site Poems are made bij Sander Neijnens and Nick J. Swarth.
