A Year of Poetry Journal

This journal is full of blank calendar pages; mooch it and add your poems! When the journal is full, contact me (BM username: milano) and I will mooch it back off you.

Please fill this journal with poetry – by a famous or infamous poet, or your own unique creations. You can pick any day, or even 2 or 3 – your birthday, a holiday, a particular poet’s birthday or just any old Tuesday! I’ve also added some colorful blank pages in the front and back for more poems. Feel free to add illustrations or other artwork with your poems, too. Don’t worry if your poem takes up more than one day – there are plenty of days for all.

Also, please do not change or alter anyone else’s entries and keep within the two week mooch window time limit. After you are done adding your poem(s), please put the journal back into this same page I’ve created for it here at BookMooch so someone else can mooch it and add to it, and when it is full, please contact me to arrange its return me.

Most of all, just have fun!


A Little Book of Linked Poetry

This is a sort of free-form on the time-honoured renga tradition. Haiku and senryu both are welcome, each poem must be inspired by some aspect of the one preceding it (be it a word, an image or a whole verse).

Please, a single poem per page and write only on the right-side (so, not on the back of another’s haiku), put your name and country on the page of your contribution.

When the booklet is full contact me (user ID seleya) and I’ll mooch it back from you.


I emailed the last person to have this journal but have received no response. It must probably be regarded as lost.

The Little Book Of Personal Poetry (And Quotes)

This little book is for those quotes and poems that have meant something to you in that way you just can’t describe. Those that for one reason or another have stood out for you, and that you would like to share, along with their meaning, with the BookMooch community.

All you need do is write down the quote and where it comes from, and if you like a small explanation as to where this fits in for you- and of course, if you’re up to it, maybe even a small artwork to accompany it.

When this BMJournal is full, please send this back to me, Snofferol.

A night without armor Poems by Jewel

This is a poem book by Jewel that I thought would make a great altered book since alot of her poems are short and there is alot of free space. Feel free to work with the text or pictures or cover the pages completely. No topic to this journal, just be creative.

When full please return to me, BookMooch ID: mspeegle

Say WOOF! Poems By and About Our Pets

One of my favorite books is Unleashed: Poems by Writer’s Dogs, edited by Amy Hempel and Jim Shepard. I see there are a couple of pet-oriented journals circulating, and I wonder if my own pets, and maybe yours, would like to get in on the act. I know my current dog at least likes the TASTE of books. I’ve started the journal with a poem my husband wrote for our dog, “A Poem for Our Dog of Little Brain.”


Contact High

This is (well, it was until now) a Japanese children’s book, full of wonderfully expressive, minimalist drawings of a couple of pandas. I’m asking people to ignore the Japanese writing completely (or work with it, or around it – there’s not a lot of it, really) and to add their own thoughts, poems, stories, or drawings to the the pictures in the book. It’s as you like with this one.
