A downloadable Poetry Zine

Download NowName your own price

This is an 8-page pocket-sized zine created using a prompt from the Zine Idea Generator to "make a blackout poem zine that shows screenshots from your camera roll." 

I went a couple steps further with this challenge and limited myself to only screenshots that were already on my phone, and to take no new screenshots for the purpose of using in this zine. I also made the black out poetry from screenshots already on my phone as well. I had fun with making this from only what I had on hand in my camera roll and felt it worked out pretty well even with the limitations. I enjoy writing poetry but have never tried blackout poetry before now. Poetry is in quotations on the title page of the zine because I kind of felt like it's definitely applying the word loosely in this circumstance. But I had a good time experimenting with something new to me.
