I encourage you to try this out! Create your own blackout poetry and bring it to the library or share with me digitally. I would love to have some poems displayed outside the library.
You can come by the library and get a book page from me. You could also make a copy of one page of your favorite book to use, instead of the book itself.
What you will need:
- a page from an old book
- markers, paint, or crayons
Watch the tutorial below, and see some examples. Blackout poetry can take many forms.
