"Creativity is Subtraction"

I recently heard about Newspaper Blackout Poetry, and thought we should give it a spin in Creative Writing class.

Here's two videos to give somebackground:



A sample of Austin Kleon's Blackout Poetry:
Creative Writing 101- By Austin Kleon

Some links to explore:



So here we go!
  • You are going to create a trio of Newspaper Blackout Poetry.
  • All poems in the trio must relate to one another through a common theme.
  • Each poem must have a title.
  • Your poems are going to be displayed in three ways: On the walls in the hallway, on your blog, and submitted to Austin Kleon's blog.
Ready, set, blackout!

Trading Babe Ruth to the Yankees brought the Yankees Multiple championships and title. That didn't impact Boston because they were in the middle of building up their season and trying to keep the few good players they had.
