Write Away #11

by thiszine

Take a newspaper article and cut out individual words from the article. Put them in a bowl and shake them around. Pull them out one by one and arrange them, in the order they were pulled, onto a piece of paper. Glue them down in this order. Add the necessary words (such as articles or adverb modifications) to make a complete poem.


The surrealists often used this spontaneous, writing by chance technique in their work. Take a photograph of your newspaper poem and send it to us. We’d love to see what chance dropped on your doorstep!
