Heads up: the folks at SoulPancake are having a blackout poetry challenge. I like the way they describe the poems:
…looking for rhythms and patterns and poetry using only the words printed on a single sheet of a magazine or newspaper. The rest is blacked out with a Sharpie, á la Austin Cleon [sic], whose newspaper blackout poems touch on relationships, cartwheels, nothingness—oh, and big cats.
It’s much more difficult than it looks. But your reward is the poem within: Did you just write it? Or was it there waiting for you all along?
In other news: prints will be available very, very soon. But not from us… (Hint!)
