Poetry by Pittsburghers

This site chronicles a collaborative effort to create poetry.

It takes place in rounds, scheduled and announced occasionally by the organizers.

Each round has its own distinct challenge, but generally it involves a new set of topics, which each participant must incorporate into his or her poem.  This provides not only a useful source of external inspiration, but also an opportunity to see how different poets interpret the same topics.

Each round has a submission deadline, and once all of the contributions are received the results are posted on this site.  The participants are also strongly encouraged to meet in person to read and discuss the poems.

If you are interested in participating, see how to take part.
