Be a cut-up

Printer-friendly version

Award-winning poet Liz Howard encourages you to be a cut-up. Try it!


Print out a piece of your own writing, a piece of writing taken from a science blog/journal textbook (something really juicy like virology, cosmology, archaeology), as well as another piece of literature (something very different would be best like science fiction or something pre-1900). Cut lines/verses/phrases/words and combine them to make new poems.
