Cut-Up Poetry Workshop @ Strand Center for the Arts
October 16 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
This workshop takes place at the Strand Center for the Arts in Plattsburgh, and registrations must be made through their website.
Join Visiting Writer Erin Dorney from the Adirondack Center for Writing to learn more about ACW’s Poetry Machine—the kind you might spend two quarters to get a bouncy ball, sticky hand, or small plastic alien from in the vestibule of a convenience store. With ACW’s repurposed machine, you can get your very own poem for free—no quarters necessary.
After checking out the machine (yes, it will be there in person!), Dorney will teach a workshop on cut-up poetry, where text from discarded books, magazines, and newspapers is physically cut up and rearranged to create a poem. Think collage—but with words! Participants will make cut-up poems and fold them to put inside the machine and be shared with readers across the Adirondack region.All supplies provided. No writing experience required.
