  10. Create A Book Spine Poem

    Creating book spine poems are a fun and creative way to craft a poem without having to write down any words. They are created by stacking books on top of each other until a poem emerges.

    Go to your local library, or pull off a handful of books from your own shelf at home. Stack the books on top of each other, and read the titles from top to bottom. Each title becomes a different line of the poem. Arrange the books in an order that most appeals to you, and feel free to replace book titles that aren’t working well into your poem.
