Item Alias: resurrection


Welcome to Resurrection Jukebox, a music writing challenge brought to you by "The Soundtrackers Group! This activity is held every October and celebrates the Halloween spirit by conjuring the spirits of artists both past and surpassed. If you think you have what it takes to delve into the dark history of music, read on!


How It Works

This is a blackout poetry (also sometimes referred to as redaction poetry) challenge! If you're unfamiliar with the form, you create it by taking an existing piece of writing and selectively blacking-out the words and phrases you don't want to use, leaving snippets that will form your own new poem. Here's an example:




How to create blackout poetry on WDC


During this challenge, your task will be to create fifteen (15) blackout poems based on the lyrics from a qualifying song of your choice.

Qualifying songs must be from a song of your choice, and that song must be EITHER:

         *Bullet* By an artist who is deceased, OR
         *Bullet* By an artist who is defunct, disbanded, or no longer performing


Additional Resources
