Grid Poems Vol. I


Let’s start with… what exactly is a grid poem?

A grid poem is a 3 x 3-inch arrangement of lines written to allow two different readings: left-to-right and top-to-bottom. This allows subtly, or drastically, different perspectives to emerge from the same text. Part haiku, part Sudoku, the full poem is only revealed through re-reading and exploration.



Art and design collective Point in Passing just released a book of grid poetry with collaborator Brian Isett, called Grid Poems Vol. I. The book is a collection of 45 illustrated poems on hope, loss, and expectation. Not only brilliantly creative and imaginative, but also rather pertinent to the current times we’re living in.
