Black-Out Poetry consists of subtracting all but the poet's chosen words from a page of fiction. Be your own censor, and be creative! The most banal line of dialogue can yield some pithy poems. Mark out lines or doodle all over the page to create an artsy frame for your chosen words.
Alternately, teens can challenge themselves to craft a poem by choosing at random from our word jar. Pick a few or grab a bunch and see what you can put together! Use our cut-out words alone or add them to your own written lines, it's up to you.
