QUICK LIT TREND OF THE WEEK! It's All About Calligrams!

Creative, Fun, Expressive, and Edgy! This off the beaten path "literary trend" has elements that can take the reader on a journey with words and a picture combined in one.

Calligrams- is a poem, phrase, or word in which the typeface, calligraphy or handwriting is arranged in a way that creates a visual image. The image created by the words expesses visually what the word, or words, say.

It gives the reader a true picture of what the writer is expressing.
This literary trend is mindblowing and takes a true creative mind to pull off. When it's all put together you definitely get what you the writer envisioned. 

So if your thing is poetry, try your hand at creating a Calligram so your audience can get a true picture of your poetic message.
