Transcript of Blackout Poetry

It's like a reverse word-search! Let's look at some examples first.

Vol XCIII, No. 311
It's more than scribbling!
So what's the actual process?
Blackout Poetry in Action:
Newspaper or Article Blackout:
With a marker or pen (or pencil!) square off the words/letters you want to use from the article to construct the body of your poem
You have to read the newspaper in a new way to make sure your sentences flow, are grammatically correct and poetic (has a deep meaning!)
Blackout Poetry
Make sure it makes sense grammatically! It doesn't need to rhyme, but it should have a poetic message similar to the examples we looked at.
Once you have squared off the words you want to keep, just black out or scribble out the rest of the article!
Remember to edit your poem before blacking everything out!
Voila! You are done.
