Join me as I lead a workshop on Blackout and Erasure Poetry, open to all. In the workshop, we'll look at examples of the form and see why blackout/erasure is often referred to a "poetry of absence." Using existing text provided to attendees, we'll explore ways we can frame words and create new work. For examples of blackout poetry, see http://newspaperblackout.com/ or http://erasures.wavepoetry.com/. Bring your own source text if you'd like. Newpapers will be provided as source material.
At the Modesto Library, in the downstairs auditorium. Take elevator or stairs down. Refreshments provided. See you there!
