Flex your creativity in this mashup of visual and literary arts. Blackout or Erasure Poetry is a form of found poetry where the creator removes words from texts like; newspaper clippings or old book pages; to create something new. Some creators simply black out the words they do not need, while others create drawings around them and make them illegible in other ways, leaving behind a few choice words to create a poem, and a visual art piece to go along with it.
What will you create?
