ZineWriMo Day 26 – Warm Up Blackout Poetry

Hello, and happy Friday. I’m doing yesterday’s prompt today because I want to catch up, and I really like…

Warm Up – Try making blackout poetry

If you’re not familiar, blackout poetry is where you take an already established text and black out part of the text to create something new.

There’s something intriguing to me about blackout poetry. I never know where it’s going or where it’ll really end up until I’m finished. For a long time I was actually a bit intimidated by blackout poetry and didn’t do it. What could I possibly create? Would it be easy or hard? Would I love it or hate it?

It turned out I really love it. It’s like unlocking a hidden puzzle inside every piece of text. And you can do it more than once to unlock different puzzles. I know it can feel a bit daunting, but I recommend giving it a go if you haven’t yet.

Have you tried blackout poetry?
