Sometimes you just need to sit down and read poems that don’t make sense to you yet and let yourself focus on that instead of whatever else you have on your mind.
How the hell should I know? I’ve never published in a literary magazine.
Just type out the words, pretend they were always yours, and send in the manuscript. Ha!
Part three of #AllHallowsBlackout
For most of October, I told a ghost story with a daily blackout on Instagram.:

“Map of the Island,” a newspaper blackout by Austin Kleon
Hello new (and longtime) followers! You can submit your own blackout poems here.
For the rest of October, I’m telling a ghost story with a daily blackout. Here are the first ten. The last one will be posted on Halloween. You can follow along as I post them on Instagram: @austinkleon
The idea for the campaign was suggested by “Broken Shield,” a series by California Watch that investigated problems at centers for the developmentally disabled. When reporters received documents they had requested from state officials, “the documents were entirely redacted,” Mr. Bronstein said, “not just the words but the margins.”
“Rich took that redaction notion,” he added, “to deliver the message that we are the antidote to redaction.”
The center’s new logo looks like a redacted document, with everything unreadable except for five words: “the,” “center for,” “investigative” and “reporting.” The logo will appear in numerous places like the center’s Web site, video clips and movie-style posters that promote the center’s reporting.
…The logo is meant to symbolize that “you have to go beyond that blacked-out material to find the truth,” Mr. Silverstein said in a separate phone interview.
I don’t have a comment except, I named the book Steal Like An Artist, not Steal Like An Ad Agency.
