April 10, 2020: Poetry Writing Prompt – Angie Bell


This poetry writing prompt submitted by Angie Bell:

Write a blackout poem. Blackout poetry is when a page of text, usually an article from a newspaper or a page from a novel, is completely blacked out (colored over with permanent marker so that it is no longer visible) except for a select few words. When only these words are visible, a brand new story is created from the existing text.

Cite the reference, including page number, of the original text.

If you write a poem from this prompt, post it as a comment underneath the prompt in the Poetry Super Highway Facebook Group.
