How can erasure poetry be a means for confrontation and dialogue? What makes a good erasure poem? How can a poet use feedback to revise a visual poem? Whether someone is new to poetry, or is an experienced writer, erasing found text can help poets generate visually-engaging work that responds to power with precision and complexity. In this workshop, participants will analyze different strategies used in erasure poems, try out these strategies by drafting 2-3 erasures of their own, and give and receive feedback on work crafted during the workshop. Readings include poems by Chase Berggrun, jayy dodd, Philip Metres, Isobel O’Hare, M. NourbeSe Philip, and Srikanth Reddy.
