Camp NaNoWriMo – 23rd

This one might be a bit hard to read but giving credit to the original creator: Terra Nostra – Carlos Fuentes


A blackout poem is when a poet takes a marker (usually black marker) to already established text—like in a newspaper—and starts redacting words until a poem is formed. The key thing with a blackout poem is that the text AND redacted text form a sort of visual poem.

  1. It definitely is a bit creepy, but I like it. I think that the choices you have to make while redacting require a lot of thought and also teach you something about the rhythm of the original writing.

      1. I can email it to you, or next month I’ll upload the pdf for anyone who wants a copy 😊


      2. Hey i just got it.. It’s not working in the app but it’s working in the browser. And it was quite chilling to read! And must’ve been so tough to envision this! Great work!
