Description:

This is my first swap and I hope everyone has a great time!

For this swap, I want to exchange one of my favorite creative exercises- blackout poetry! Select a random page from a used book. Rip it out and grab your sharpie! To create your poetry, "blackout" (or strike out with your sharpie) any words that you will not be using in your poem. The end result? A new poem created by you!

Still confused? Check out these links: https://magistramonson.wordpress.com/2013/12/16/blackout-poetry-with-the-book-thief/

For this swap, you will be assigned one partner. Please send your poetry in a notecard. Extra poems or fun little gifts are nice but by no means necessary.

It is newbie friendly and internationally open. I will cruise through the profiles to make sure everyone has been sending and rating regularly.
