  1. Blackout Poetry @ Manitowoc Public Library

    April 29, 2021, All Day @ This Virtual Event will be posted to MPL’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/manitowoclibrary/

    When ¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦ creativity ¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦ collides with the unforeseen ¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦ a single outcome ¦¦¦¦ infuses ¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦ the imagination: ¦¦¦¦¦¦ inspiration. A blackout poem is created when a poet takes a marker to an already established text—like a romance novel—and starts redacting words until a new poem is formed. Here’s an easy guide to creating Blackout Poetry: • Skim your page • Go through and circle the words or phrases you want to use • Go through and boldly box the words you’re keeping with pen or Sharpie • Read through your final poem • Go through and blacken all of the material not used • Bask in the glory of your creation To participate, send a photo of your completed Blackout Poem to Therese at thorsketter@manitowoc.org or drop it off at MPL’s Service Desk. Poems will be shared on MPL’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/manitowoclibrary) and also displayed at the Library through the end of April in celebration of National Poetry Month.
