Encomials: Sonnets from Pentametron
My bot and I wrote a book! I used a fancier version of pentametron (previously on projects) to generate a book of sonnets made entirely of texts found on twitter. It's been published by Counterpath Press as part of the Using Electricity series edited by Nick Montfort.

Along with some of the other authors in the series, we're having a little book tour next week in NYC, Providence, and Boston! Details in the blog post.

I love generated poetry so much!
Last year for NaNoGenMo I generated a whole book of Shakespearean sonnets as one long acrostic. It was the big proof-of-concept for my line-and-rhyme-based poetry generator Poefy.
Is your source code available anywhere?
