Newspaper Blackout Poem Inspired by Austin Kleon

Hi everyone! Some of you have probably seen Austin Kleon’s newspaper blackout poems, or similar poems by other people. I’ve always thought they looked cool, but never tried my hand at making them. Until today, that is!


The poem reads: “Dear Friends, you are vibrant and growing Sincerely, me”

I like how this one turned out. I’ve made a couple more that I’ll post here throughout the next week or so. I’ll also be posting them, as well as poems by others, on my Tumblr.

Have you made newspaper blackout poems before? Let me know!
