Poetic Creativity Adult Summer Reading Program last day to turn in submissions

Friday, July 26

POETIC CREATIVITY. Try another experiment with poetry—Black Out Poetry that is! (See attached sheet). Submit your finished poem by Friday, July 26

POETIC CREATIVITY
Black Out Poetry that is!

1. First think of a topic you would like to create a poem about. Your poem need not rhyme, nor be in stanza form, nor be long (about 20 words should do unless the muse takes hold of you)!


2. Next take a page from a book or a magazine (or a copy of a page) and let your artistic and verbal skills mesh. You need not black out an entire page, but find an artistic way of directing the reader toward those words that comprise your poem.


3. Finally take a picture of your finished product, and e-mail it to tbarnaby@richland.lib.wa.us; on the Subject line, write” Black Out Poetry.”

4. Submit your finished poem by Friday, July 26.
