My White Out poem, courtesy of my latest issue of the Catalyst, from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
To earn the White Out badge, first get your hands on a bottle of white out, a white-out pen or white paint. Find a text you don’t mind marking up — or make a photocopy of the text if necessary — and progressively cover up lines of text with white out until only the words composing your erasure poem remain visible. Scan your completed erasure as an image — or take a picture of it — and post it to the site.
Note: You must complete this erasure process by hand — no digital tools allowed (you’ll do that for another badge).
To see a sample white-out poem, view excerpts from Mary Ruefle’s A Little White Shadow on the Poetry Foundation’s website: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/178610.
Scan or take a picture of your poem and upload it to the site. Credit your source text at the bottom of your post.
