Blackouts + Docupoetry
Join writer and educator Lupe Mendez as this class looks to focus in on the techniques and moves used to create and explore “Blackout” poetry and the concept of “Docupoetry” where poets use already created documents to draw out the language of a new poem. Model texts, readings, and a variety of documents will be provided to help participants play with poetry and create new poems and revise old poems. No prior poetry writing experience is needed.
