Alex Russell is a poet, performer and creative entrepreneur. In this final episode in the first series of Poetry Non-Stop he talks about some of his innovations in poetry including poetry in advertising, automatically generating poems with a predictive text bot, looking for love in the lonely hearts ad section of Craigslist and selling poems sealed in jars as poetry preserves. Alex's writing prompt is to identify and exploitable market and exploit it through poetry using one of Alex's ideas or one of your own. Patrick responds with an advert for a popular soft drink in the form of a villanelle.
