A Place

Hi! I’m down here 😀

I decided to play with found poetry technique called erasure for my OctoPoWriMo poem today. My inspiration came from Austin Kleon‘s collection of his own blackout poems. Originally, the Found Poetry Review mentioned using Photoshop to create my poem. I don’t have the Photoshop software, so I improvised by using PicMonkey.

This is my first attempt at using PicMonkey to create an erasure or “blackout” poem. What do you think of my technique? Any ideas on what to try next time?

The original poem, “The Four Leafed Clover” was created by Ella Higginson

  1. This was a very interesting and enriching experiment that I think you pulled off so very well!

    The presentation is awesome – it really works well – and the lines and flow – well chosen, done, arranged. All in all a great ensemble. 🙂
