Announcing NYCorrespondence, an international call for mail art, using the postcard function in the Poetics visual poetry app for iPhone. 

Create and submit a text/image work in the form of a physically mailed postcard, sent out of the Poetics app to Kickstarter’s new gallery in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

The postcards will be shown on a rotating rack, from which any visitor to the gallery may take the work.

If you’re open to correspond with whoever finds your postcard, please include some contact information on the back. 

Or leave it out as an anonymous, chance donation of mail art. 

The Poetics app is free until May 15. The show runs from May 15 to June 30th. Postcards themselves cost $1.99 sent from anywhere in the world.

An example of the postcards and rack display is shown above; each card is a traditional, 4”X6” print on glossy card stock.
