Event description


Explore and create "found poetry"--words gleaned, captured and juxtaposed from song lyrics, recipes, newspaper headlines and other existing texts. We'll look at several forms of found poetry, including collaged pieces and "blackout" poems, then make our own with magazines, old books, scissors, glue sticks and imagination. Teens and adults welcome!
