WHAT IS BLACKOUT POETRY?
Blackout poetry is created by quite literally "blacking out" - or, to be fancy, redacting - words from existing text (e.g. newspapers, books, etc.). Art can be integrated into the poem as it is written to create a visual poem of sorts. The act of combining art and writing is the very core of what The Muse does, making blackout poetry the perfect way for us to kick off our year. Each year, our team prepares to design with this fun project!
