Newspaper Blackout Poems

When poet Austin Kleon was recently featured on NPR’s Morning Edition they described his Newspaper Blackout Poems by saying, “instead of starting with a blank page, poet Austin Kleon grabs a newspaper and a permanent marker and eliminates the words he doesn’t need.”

Alternately whimsical, nostalgic, funny and always spare, the resulting poems are just asking to be set to music and ACM’s member composers have done just that.

Join us for an evening of songs torn from the daily news.
