Erasure Poetry (Poetry Craft & Form Series with BWW)

 — (EDT, UTC-04) — (EDT, UTC-04)


2021 Inaugural poet Amanda Gorman recently released a book of poems, which includes erasure poetry -- the creation of a poem by erasing or selecting from another already-written text (like an article, a letter, or a book). We'll take a look at the intersection of visual art with erasure; we'll examine the powerful erasure work of poets like Tracy K. Smith, Robin Coste Lewis, and M. NourbeSe Philip; and we'll discuss how to be mindful when choosing a text to alter. You'll be provided with a text to "erase", and we'll have the option to share the very different poems we've each created from the same text.
