Pgh Poetry Collective presents: Blackout Poetry Workshop

April 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


 Description: Blackout poetry, is a form of found poetry wherein a poet takes an existing text and erases, blacks out, or otherwise obscures a large portion of the text, creating a wholly new work from what remains. Come to the bar from 6-7pm where facilitator Lori Beth will show you the joy of erasure.

      Host  Bio: Lori Beth Jones has been serving sass and celebration almost weekly as a longtime emcee and co-Slammaster of the Steel City Poetry Slam. Always seeking to share her love of performance and community, she is a founding member of the Cultural District 2 Committee, a group that is devoted to bringing arts events to Pittsburgh’s western neighborhoods. Lori Beth got involved in Pittsburgh’s poetry community because of her natural talent for filling out forms on time and stayed for the Liner Notes showcase.  She can also be found co-producing the monthly Poetry & Pints reading that encourages first-time and new readers of all genres.  Lori Beth is honored to be included in this program.

As part of our celebration of National Poetry Month!
