National Poetry Month (Inter)national Newspaper Blackout Poetry Month!.
To celebrate, I’m going to be posting a poem every day of the month of April. The poem above is 1 out of 30!
But that’s not all: I want y’all to participate as well. Anybody who makes a Newspaper Blackout Poem this month will get a shout-out from me on this blog!
Here’s all you have to do:
