PoMoSco (Poetry Month Scouts)

During National Poetry Month, April 2015, I was among 213 poets representing 43 states and 12 countries in The Found Poetry Review's project PoMoSco (Poetry Month Scouts), working toward 30 found poetry merit badges. "These aren't your childhood merit badges! PoMoSco participants had the chance to earn up to 30 badges in April by completing poetry challenges in five categories: remixing, erasure, out and about, conceptual and chance operations."
