Blackout poetry is a fun way to write poems of your own using *other* pieces of writing (e.g., newspaper or magazine articles, pages of discarded books, etc.). You find the words for your poem on the page and then black out the rest of the words/sections on the page to make your poem come to life!

It takes a little bit of vision and creativity, but the end results are striking. (We will supply the articles, the markers, and other materials.)

NOTE: This workshop is for adults only; is limited to eight (8) people; and will take place outdoors.

Please register by contacting Joseph Morra: ; (401) 421-4084 x4301.
