The Unwritten Stories chapbooks contain original writing based on or inspired by individual pieces of jewelry that I have made - or in this case, the other way around. Each piece of named jewelry that I make is shipped with a fragment of either poetry or flash fiction tucked into the package. I never reveal the full text of the fragments online; each one can only be read by the person who purchases that piece of jewelry and anyone they choose to share it with, or in these mini chapbooks.
These collections are published under a Creative Commons license, and the fragments may be used as writing prompts or in any other form of creative work.
Issue #3: couplets. Lots and lots of couplets. 37 of them, to be precise, which form a poem about... well, I'm not entirely sure what it's about. And don't ask me how I managed to get 37 couplets when there were 48 pieces of jewelry involved in this issue.
(Please note: digital copies are only available as an accessibility accommodation; I am intentionally keeping this a print-based project as an experiment in tangibility. Print run limited to 50 copies.)
49 fragments, 12 pages, 2.75" x 3.75". One interior photomanipulation.
