Parlor Issue 1 is an online collection of 4 poems by 8 writers. Writers were paired up and asked to write a poem based off of a title prompt without knowing who their partner was.Exquisite corpse art was invented in the 1920s by the Surrealists as a parlor game. The first player would write on a sheet of paper, fold it over to conceal part of their piece, and hand the paper to the next player. The players would only find out what the other players wrote when the poem was finished.After a bit of thorough Gmail correspondence with myself being the middlewoman between partners as they wrote their parts, the poems are now finished and published. I hope you enjoy Issue 1.
