Mixed by Dan Godston.
We continue to remain committed to publishing a print journal yearly: the publication of the poems online in three installments (beginning 6 months after print publication) is intended to supplement and broaden the outreach of the print journal.
Our first installment of the poems from the 2014 issue went up in July 2014, and the second installment in October 2014. This is the final installment; you can now find the poems from the authors below, and all the rest, here.

TOPIC: Writing Oulipo and Surrealist poetry and short prose — a brief history and methods. That constraints are often used in liberating the poet is a fairly well known paradox — which we can explore, discuss, and try out. Participants may bring in some French and other examples, just for fun or for more serious purposes. You may also enjoy playing with the following web sites prior to the Forum: A Book of Surrealist Games (Shambala Publications); OULIPO (Drunken Boat)
Bring 17 or more copies (2 page limit) of a poem you want critiqued.
