ZipOde

History:

Although we are not fully certain as information about where it came from is hard to come by, the ZipOde seems to have been invented by O, Miami and WLRN to celebrate April, Poetry Month, and frankly try and get in on the marketing game.

Structure:

  • take a zip code, write it down vertically, and you find the number of words that go in each line of your poem. That’s it. Pretty snappy, to be honest.
