The prompt for my International Zine Month 2020: Zine A Day project for Day 2 was Hidden. For me, that meant creating black-out poetry.
I used an old, tattered, duplicate copy of Virginia Woolf’s To The Lighthouse to uncover my poetry from. The method is simple, yet really effective, and a perfect boost of inspiration for a poetry writing novice like myself! You take a marker that is thick, and dark enough to cover up the text, and then cover over the words with only your poem remaining to be read.
My poetry started off with deep consideration, and literary thought… but then quickly descended into finding the rude bits and making dirty poetry!
It was good fun though!!
