SPAM Prompts vs. SPAM Poetry (or spoetry)

Publish date:

In my Friday SPAM prompts I offer the subject line of a SPAM message as a springboard for a writing exercise. This isn't the same as actual SPAM poetry, or spoetry, which has been around since the late 90s. Ben Meyers, blogging on The Guardian Unlimited website, offers his views on "this odd art form" along with interesting examples. Commenters continue the conversation, presenting their own perspectives (and samples).
