Create Poetry using Scrapbooking Techniques @ East End Arts
Time & Location
About the Workshop
Join us at East End Arts to create poetry using scrapbooking techniques! Poetry is everywhere, you just need to find it! Found Poetry is the literary equivalent of a visual collage: you combine concepts and phrases from multiple media (i.e. newspapers, magazines, books, diary entries, and even to-do lists) to create new “found poems”. This is a class for those who are looking to explore poetry in a new, fun way! Come refashion, reorder, and reframe ordinary texts into creative poems with local poet Hanan Hazime. You will learn how to create poems using a variety of found poetry writing methods including the cut-up technique, erasure, blackout poetry, and the cento. At the end of this 2.5-hour workshop, participants will leave with several “found poem collages” that they can frame into unique pieces of literary art! Participants are welcome to bring any print media that they’d like to pull words and phrases from.
