Writers on deviant art have discovered a new way to find inspiration--- stealing it from someone else!
Never fear though, as this particular brand of plagiarism is sanctioned
by the original authors through the new lit group, versecannibal
asks for poems to be offered up for sacrifice to the versecannibal
gallery, from where dA writers can take the piece to rewrite, cut-up, use as inspiration, or adapt to suit themselves in any other way they like.
The cannibalized pieces are then posted and linked in the comments
on the gallery submission, where everyone reads and enjoys all the exciting and different places a poem can be taken.
Its a bit like donating a photograph to a stock club for others to use in photo manipulations, only... it's words!
