"News print poetry", a form of "found poetry" or "blackout poetry." I took one story from the Orlando Sentinel newspaper each day and transformed it into a poem by creatively selecting words from the story. The words are kept in their original order and no words were added. The 2012 project is completed, but I add new poems from time to time.
I commented on my progress, and about writing in general, on a companion blog: http://newsprintpoetry.blogspot.com.
with my siblings about favorite
foods from our childhood.
I found this in the food section of the
newspaper.I bet each family has their
own special list.I think it would be
fun to have each sibling in your family make their own list and bring it to the
next family get-together. My would include hostess SnoBalls, Kool-Aid, Three Musketeers
candy bars, and Creamsicles.
