Blackout poetry: Tuesday 5 April

When: Tuesday 5 April, 4pm - 5pm

Where: Waverley Library

Do you enjoy writing, poetry, art and collage? Want to try something new?

Blackout poetry is the treasure hunt of poetry. You find words that catch your interest from a newspaper, book, or magazine and “blackout” the words you don’t want, creating your own poem.

Not only will you become a poet for the day, but also an artist as we take the poem and create a collage around it with a variety of mixed media. All materials will be provided.
