      I’ve never done blackout poetry, but I think it’s gorgeous and love to read it. I’ll have to stalk this conversation and see what everyone else has to say. 😛

      I think @cindy might do some blackout poetry… Ah! Yes! I found her article on blackout poetry here: https://kingdompen.org/the-hidden-art-of-blackout-poetry/

      @emma-starr I’ve never actually tried it before, but I think it’s amazing!  I’m inspired to do some, now you bring it up!  Have you?

        @evelyn Isn’t it cool?? Hav eyou seen the ones with atrwork instead of blackout?

        @ashira

        Blackout poetry is a technic that involves blacking out all the words on a page of writing (usually from a book or newspaper) except a few chosen words that string together,making a short, free-verse style poem.

        Here are some examples of blackout poetry:

        @libbyIt’s actually pretty hard to come up with something, but I like it because it’s fun and different. You should definitely try it!

        I have done three or four poems, and I’ll post one or two on here. Tell me if you like them! 🙂

        I’ve actually been wanting to try blackout poetry! I would feel kind of bad wrecking some poor book though.

        @the-fledgling-artist I usually print out pages from the internet that are kind of like public domain/free. I feel the same way about books. 😀
