Erasure Poems and Zines
Erasure is a poetic practice that makes use of a source text by erasing the language of the old text to create a new poetic text. In this workshop we'll investigate erasure's similarity to the erosion of texts such as Sappho's fragments, and the appropriation of censorship's methodologies for aesthetic ends. We'll take a look at examples of book length projects of erasure such as Jen Bervin's Nets, Mary Ruefle's A Little White Shadow, Tom Phillips' Humument, Ronald Johnson's Radi Os and several othersbut mostly we'll be making erasures of our own, led by Hajara Quinn, using white out, markers, or devising other means to erase, redact, highlight or creatively deface or elide.

We will then make a collaborative zine, led by A.M. O'Malley, each student will take home a copy of the erasures made in class.

This is a 2.5 hour class.
