Vi skapar #BlackOutPoetry

När man skapar BlackOut Poetry börjar man med att ringa in de ord man vill ha kvar så de bildar en dikt. Den som sägs ha startat dikterna är en man vid namn Austin Kleon. Idag finns hashtagen #blackoutpoetry för att samla de dikter som delas i sociala medier. Vill du veta mer?
