Do you find writing to be difficult? Do you often have writer's block? Do you think that writing a poem seems impossible? Don't fret - borrow ideas and words from your favorite author to make your very own blackout poetry...
1. Select a page from your favorite novel, non-fiction book, or even article.
2. Make a photocopy of the page from the book or print a page from the article.
3. Use a dark marker to make a box around words/phrases on the page that you would like to use for your "blackout poem."
4. Shade any additional text in an artistic or creative manner to blackout the unwanted text and to make your poem stand out.
