Blackout Poetry Contest

1.  Pick an article from the newspaper or photocopy a page from a book.
2.  Find words to make an interesting poem and circle them.  Remember that they will be read from left to right and top to bottom.
3.  Using a black marker or paint, cover the rest of the words.  Have fun and draw a picture if you like.

Entries will be accepted from September 23, 2014 to 3:00 pm September 27.  Winner will be chosen by staff and awarded a gift certificate to a local business.

Check out the photo gallery on this website, the library or our Facebook page throughout the month of September for examples.
