Guerilla Poetry

I just found out about the Guerilla Poetry Project (the GPP) from a poet who has previously published in Albatross #15, Luis Cuauhtemoc Berriozabal, who is a founding member.  The idea is that they sneak postcards (or “broadsides”) into targeted books so that people will discover them (for as their bumper sticker says, “poetry is not meant to be hidden, it’s meant to be found”).  This reminds me of Book Crossing, where people leave books around in public places inviting others to “steal this book” and, when done, to drop it off somewhere else… I will add the GPP to my blogroll.
