Book Spine Poetry: Novels

Last week we wrote book spine poems using children’s books so this week, as promised, we are moving to the novel section of my bookshelf.

You can find poems anywhere! Even in a stack of books! Creating a spine poem is much like writing found poetry but instead of using the text from a page of a book or article, you use the titles printed on the spines of books. Simply arrange the books so the spines can be read like a sentence. You don’t need a large number of books to create a spine poem, just an imagination.

Emma in the night
lock every door
the turn of the key
a sudden light...
then she was gone

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN

Raid your bookshelves for spines and see what you come up with. Even better, grab your kids and make it a family activity. Feel free to share your poetry with us in the comments below (scroll way down). For those of you who would like to share or comment anonymously, I’ve created settings to allow you to do so.
