Blackout Poetry

blackout poetryCelebrate National Poetry Month by creating blackout poetry. No, it doesn't require writing in the dark, in fact, it doesn't require writing at all. All you need are a few pages of text (typically from an old book, magazine, or newspaper) and a black marker. Simply blackout all of the words you want to hide, and voilà, the visible words that remain create a blackout poem. View a gallery of blackout poetry from the simple to the sublime from @makeblackoutpoetry via Instagram.

Want to try your hand at blackout poetry? Stop by the 1st floor reference desk in April and we'll provide supplies to help you get started.
