Redacted Love Poetry

My first attempt at redacted poetry. In this form, you take any existing written page and select words from it to create a new poem. You can decorate around it. Spike and I created this while preparing to host a both at Nickel Plate Arts last Valentine’s Day.

Something I love about this form is even people who are intimidated by poetry can do this form, but committed poets find it a creative challenge, too. One lady who stared at her paper for 25 minutes before circling any words later said it was one of the most fulfilling creative experiences she’d had in a while. Poetry is for everyone!
