How To Do It

  • Collect various catalogs, magazines, newspapers.
  • Take time to copy or cut out words or headlines that appeal to you.
  • Arrange these words to create an original poem.
  • Share your poems with each other.


  1. Do you like the poetry collage that you created? 
  2. Now add your own words to the words that you cut out or copied from the newspapers and magazines. Does this improve the poem?
  3. What can you say about our society today based on the newspaper headlines and catalog words that you found? Do your poems capture this?
