Fabulous Poetry Idea--Blackout Poems

Read Between the Lines to Find Texas Poet’s VerseMorning Edition, May 9, 2008

Instead of starting with a blank page, poet Austin Kleon grabs the New York Times and a permanent marker — and eliminates the words he doesn’t need. He recently transformed an article about a piano concert into a poem that begins: “Forget about trying to speak … the image is the travelogue.” The newspaper ends up more black than white, and shows another way to read between the lines.


Read about this from Jillypoet's site. Both interesting writers and well deserving of a look/see.
