Guerrilla HOOT

Ever since its conception HOOT has championed the idea of guerrilla literature. The idea of shareable literature and found art was important in both the concept and the aesthetic of our magazine. Editors and interns have taken a considerable amount of joy by spreading flash fiction and poetry through postcard bombing museums (in the friendliest way possible), planting HOOT flowers around college campuses, and beautifying abandoned areas with posters and postcards. If you look closely around your city you might even find one of our issues (and if you do let us know!).

So, with that in mind, we’re all pretty jazzed over here that we got a shout out in Flavorwire’s 10 Guerrilla Poetry Projects

Here are some examples of the places that HOOT has sprouted up:

From left to right (top to bottom): HOOT at the NY Public Library; HOOT at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia; HOOT planted in a garden in West Philadelphia; HOOT on the Amtrak

From left to right (top to bottom): HOOT hiding in a suit of arms at a haunted historical event in New Jersey, HOOT represented in a ukelele at a music venue in South Carolina, and HOOT at a cemetery in University City

And just to prove that we are fearless and creative, we have documentation of our guerrilla tactics in action:

That would be the HOOT gang wheat pasting our posters and planting HOOT flowers.

Happy hunting for HOOTs – enjoy the discovered words!

    Happy second birthday this October. Most 2-year olds are terrors. And not nearly as articulate. You, however, are truly a HOOT.
