Last week in class, our assignment was to follow in the steps of Austin Kleon and make our very own "Newspaper Blackout." A Newspaper Blackout is when you take any story from a newspaper and completely transform it by blacking out certain words while revealing the words that end up creating your final poem or story. This is a very interesting project because you can start out with a story that has a negative outlook and end up changing it into a positive poem about love. This was my first time ever trying this way of story telling and I would highly recommend others to try it! Also check out Austin Kleon's site and follow him on Instagram! I love looking at the different stories he writes every day.
