Likestarlings is poetic collaboration/conversation at the poem level rather than at the line level.

It has some quality poets taking part.

The Cleave webzine was mentioned on their blog:

“One of the people to get in touch Dr Phuoc-Tan Diep, who runs Cleave Poetry webzine, a similar and ambitious online experiment in collaborative poetics, we recommend it.”

I will begin with a half-line and hopefully some brave adventurous soul will cleave with me:

The swish of fireside wings –

The Cleave Matrix is for poets to pair up and create joint cleave poems.
How?

1. email me your name and your cleave partner’s, or start the cleave and wait for a partner
2. email me your first half-line
3. I will post your first half-line
4. from then on use the comments section to add to the cleave poem
5. email me when you have finished your cleave and I will post it in the main body of the post

If there are any further questions or need for clarification please:
email me:
cleavepoetry (at) gmail (dot) com

Enjoy
