Tie-in Talk: Transforming Paper – the Art of Blackout Writing

Tuesday, September 20 at 6:30pm

EVENT DETAILS

Blackout writing is a technique for creating new stories and poems from an existing text on paper – a page from a book, newspaper, or even an instruction manual- by blacking out certain words to highlight others. Explore your creative side. No experience required. All materials will be provided.

This event is free to the public and takes place on the front porch of the Reeves House, or inside if there is inclement weather.

RSVP’ing is encouraged to give us an idea of how many visitors to expect.
