Developed by Girls' Club Spring 2015 graphic design intern Bailey Glazer, Part Time Rhyme aims to connect the visual with the literary arts in a multi-disciplinary mash up of poetics and aesthetics.
With a mission to inspire the hidden poet inside everyone...
We're inviting artists, students, writers, laymen and the creatively-uninclined to try their hand at a rhyming scheme. To help activate these 'part time' poets, Girls' Club offers its exhibition of 42 works of contemporary art as an inspirational tool.
Artwork from Nina Chanel Abney, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Aramis Gutierrez, Allison Elizabeth Taylor, Lori Nix, Amy Cutler, Lisa Sanditz, and Paco Pomet.
How to be a Part-Time Poet
Once a week throughout the poetic month of April, two pieces from the current exhibit will be posted via this Facebook event page.
All are invited to comment or post an original, short poem using any rhyming scheme you wish. Please no free verse. Only original material and authored by its poster will be considered. By posting a poem, you are agreeing to allow Girls' Club to publish the work online and in print with proper credit.
'Like' your favorite poems and share with your friends!
At the end of the month, Girls' Club will publish a zine with favorite poems and disperse, for free, during the Last Saturday Artwalk in Fort Lauderdale on April 25, 2015, 6-10pm, and at partnering locations around South Florida.
