Blackout Poetry Class

January 18, 2020 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm EST

Join us for a class on blackout poetry led by local author John Opelenik.

A blackout poem is when a poet takes a marker (usually black marker) to already established text–like in a newspaper–and starts redacting words until a poem is formed. The key thing with a blackout poem is that the text AND redacted text form a sort of visual poem. You’re taking something someone else created and using it to create something else. Blackout poetry is a great cure for writer’s block and a nice way to create visual art with words.

Drinks and snacks will be available for purchase during the event. All materials will be supplied.

A purchase from That Book Store is required to join the signing line; additional books from home of older titles can be signed at the discretion of the author.

Those guidelines are determined by the author and the publisher, so check each event for specifics.
