Teens (6-12 grade) are invited to submit creative "blackout poems"! Just photocopy a page from a book or newspaper and use a black marker or crayon to cover all of the words except the ones that will make your poem (examples)! Winning entries will be enlarged and displayed as part of a mural in the TeenZone at MCPL Wausau.

Entries must include: title; author's first and last name; current grade; school name; mailing address; telephone number and email address. For more information, please email us or call 715-261-7283.
