The BabyFist family invites you to a night of black-out poetry. We’ll be using old newspapers to make poems about anything and everything related to gendered experiences. Afterwards, we’ll share the poems (or you can just listen!) and explore our shared experiences through poetry-reading and story-telling.
What is Black-Out Poetry?
Blackout poetry is the process of taking a document (like a newspaper) and crossing out most of text with a black marker, leaving visible only a words which end up making a poem. In other words, we’re taking something old and producing something new piece of art out of it.
What to Expect
A challenging but beautiful creative process designed to help you share a story
