Blackout poetry involves taking a page from something pre-existing, and blacking out all but a few key words and phrases to make a poem. For this swap, you will send 1 partner 3 blackout poems made from book pages.

ETA: you may also print e-book pages. The only real stipulation is that they are from a book.


  • you may use an actual book page or a photocopied version-- no need to ruin a book unless you already have some exclusively for crafting

  • please use black marker/ink only. You may embellish or decorate the pages however you wish, but it isn't necessary

  • all three pages must be from different books. Any book, fiction or non-fiction is fine, but steer away from blatantly offensive material

  • 4.9 rating or higher, newbies allowed with well-filled profile-- I DO check

  • I may drop users from the swap at my discretion if they look suspicious

  • I will angel after you try to work it out with your partner and rate a 1

Message me with any questions/concerns. I generally respond the same day.

Happy swapping! :)

I accidentally had the deadline set for too short of a turnaround, but it's fixed now. One week makes way more sense than 2 days
