True Stories of Open Sharing

Connections and Poems (Kevin Hodgson and #rhizo15)

This collaborative poetry venture emerged rather unexpectedly in Rhizomatic Learning, where Ron shared a poem of 11 words (total) about a day of the week and invited people to try the form with him. We then had this idea of constructing an audio pyramid by inviting a small group to write and record poems, too, with the aim of slowly building each day with yet another voice from around the world.

We used an #11poem hashtag to share individually each day, and then everyone recorded/shared as download via Soundcloud, which allowed for magical Scotch-taping the poems together in Audacity for the final poetry collection.

All roads lead to Sunday. Put on your headphones and take a listen:
