[ARCHIVED] Tween Scene: Blackout Poetry

Tween Scene - 4-19 Blackout Poetry

April is National Poetry Month, and tweens ages 10 to 13 can celebrate by creating blackout poetry at the Garland Library’s Tween Scene programs in April. Attendees will use pages from old books to make blackout poetry, or poetry created by marking out words from previously published works. Tweens will circle the words they want in their poems with crayons or markers and draw or color over the rest of the page. The design they create on the page is meant to express the meaning of their poem.
