Writing Erasure Poetry – Winter 2021

Writing erasure or blackout poems can help us protest injustice, counteract historical erasures, reveal layers in a source text, and even uncover our own buried thoughts and feelings. In this class, we’ll read erasures by Kiki Petrosino, Tarfia Faizullah, Sarah J. Sloat, and other poets to analyze what makes their poems work before creating our own erasures. Bring some texts you’d like to erase, or work with provided texts.  For all levels.

Carrie Green is a librarian and the author of Studies of Familiar Birds: Poems.
