Erasure Poetry

August 25, 2018 @ EST 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


In this workshop, participants will learn about and try their hand at erasure poems. Also known as blackout poems, erasure poems are culled from a source text that is (in many cases) not inherently poetic. Source texts could include scientific textbooks, political speeches, celebrity interviews, or national park brochures. The writer then erases or blacks out the majority of the words (redacting), with the remaining words creating the poem. Publication of erasure poetry will also be covered.


Come see Erin read from her book, I Am Not Famous Anymore on Friday night at 7:30 PM. Click here for more information.
