Erasure: Dec 6 L v ng R m 7P

November 30, 2011
Splabman

Prose is prose because of what it includes; poetry is poetry because of what it leaves out.
—Marvin Bell

What is erasure poetry and why does Ron Silliman compare it to the play of burlesque or striptease?  Come to Living Room to consider the possibilities.  After pondering some examples, you will have the chance to try your hand at one of your own.  You will have the option to work from an “assigned text” or from a copy of the poem you bring to workshop!  Other ideas for erasure will be explored. Jeanne Morel is your guide for the evening.

Writers of all ages and skill levels gather Tuesdays at 7P to read new work, the work of someone else or to just be in the engaging company of other writers. Your donation of $5 helps SPLAB continue our programming. Please bring 8 copies of the work you plan to read. If you do not bring copies, they are available for 10c.
