Newspaper blackout poetry


These are two of my newspaper blackout poems, inspired by Austin Kleon. They are created by picking out words from newspaper articles in order to create new meaning. I think it’s really interesting, and it’s really fun to do. I’ve always loved ‘found’ things like this, and finding poetry within something else is something I find pretty exciting and very cool. It’s like there are secret little hidden stories and you can uncover them. They also tend to create themselves, because of the limitations of the words available and somehow are endlessly inspiring when it comes to drawings and film ideas.
