      6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8SEED Lab, 109 W. 6th Ave.

      Explore using redaction for expression in this workshop series. Remove and add words in found writing to discover and create new content from writings, found poems and other fragments of text—either your own work or collections from printed texts (such as magazines, newspapers, road signs, blogposts, articles, or stories) that you bring. Published works will be available at the workshops, but participants are encouraged to bring a collection of writing—such as found poems, fragments, headlines or other already existing texts—that can prompt exploration. Redacted poetry, also called erasure poetry, takes the practice of removing words from texts to create an entirely new work. These workshops engage participants to explore ready-made writing, either published or unpublished, using redaction to create new and unexpected poetry or prose. Used for centuries to keep facts secret, to frame different stories, or to alter through removal, redaction can prompt new meaning from overlooked writing and heighten expression in words often dulled from over-use.

       

      The second workshop in the series is:Writing Workshop 2: Collect + Frame
