Learn how to utilize ‘found’ or ‘source’ texts when composing poetry. Please register. Adults.

An increasingly common practice in contemporary North American poetry is utilizing ‘found’ or ‘source’ texts when composing poetry. What is the difference between being inspired and plagiarizing? Learn about the right way to reference these ‘gleaned’ words and phrases and discover the benefits in using other texts when writing poetry.

Karen Houle is the author of two poetry collections, Ballast (1995) and During (2000). She teaches in the Philosophy department at the University of Guelph. She is also involved with the Guelph Centre for Urban Organic Farming, where her interest in putting environmental ethics into practice has shifted her toward land-based approaches to learning. She lives in Guelph, Ontario.
