How to do Blackout Poetry and "Unstuck" Giveaway For this week's giveaway I want to introduce you to a book called "Unstuck" by Noah Scalin. I was sent a copy to review by Quarry Books and I am truly amazed by this book. You can check out his website "Make Something 365". Inside you have 52 projects or ways to get you to start being creative. Things you may have never thought of before, interesting ways to do things, and great writing/art prompts. When I was putting together my "Writing and the Visual Arts" session with my colleague Kim McCullough we kept going back to this book saying "Oh we could do that, or that , or that". I have a waiting list of teachers at school wanting to borrow this book so you know that's a good sign! Here are the particulars: - soft cover - 240 pages - 9.25" X 6.25" or 23.5 cm X 16 cm - suggested list price $19.99 CAN but I found it for just over $15 at Chapters - publisher is Voyageur Press Here is one of the projects that I can envision as a larger art project. Find some old books. Let dry. That's it! P.S.
