Program Type:Books, Literature, & Writing
Age Group:Teens (Grades 7-12)
Stop by the Teen Room anytime in the month of April and pick up a couple pages of an old book to create your own Blackout Poetry.
Take it home or put it up on Teen Room Windows when you are done!
April is National Poetry Month, so try creating some poems of your own! Blackout poetry is a low pressure, accessible writing exercise that can result in surprisingly meaningful art. So grab a pencil, a marker, and a newspaper or unwanted book, and get ready to find a poem of your own not by writing words, but by erasing them.
