An Old Love Revisited

When I taught creative writing, one of the assignments I gave my class was a black out poem using one article or if they chose listing three or four listings (like real estate, personals, help wanted). I was hoping they would use the personal ads (there is some great material there, seriously), but I discover that pretty much any article can become profound when properly blacked out.

Austin Kleon has revived that deep love of mine with his newspaper black out poems archive.

Thank you metafilter for making my friday!

Have I shared with any of you yet that it makes my day that I have lured the Doberman into reading Metafilter? Today the Doberman tomorrow the world!
