Austin Kleon finds poetry in newspapers.

“Instead of starting with a blank page, poet Austin Kleon grabs the New York Times and a permanent marker and eliminates the words he doesn’t need.”— NPR’s Morning Edition

“…a kind of Rorschach approach to reading newspapers…” —The Wall Street Journal

“The poems] resurrect the newspaper when everyone else is declaring it dead…like a cross between magnetic refrigerator poetry and enigmatic ransom notes, funny and zen-like, collages of found art…” —The New Yorker

This is a great creative exercise. Try it!
