Weekly Writing Workshops Writing Work for Home ~ Homework
Writing Work for Home from Write On! Creative Writing Center
This week at Write On, our focus was blackout poetry. Blackout poetry is poetry that’s formed by taking a page from a book (or newspaper or magazine, etc.) and blacking out words that you don’t want to use with a marker. Writers learn how to create within boundaries through this exercise.
For work at home, writers are encouraged to take a page from a newspaper or print up a piece that has a lot of words and create their own blackout poetry at home.
