Last week was the week I said, I was going to release my E-Book. Then I ended up getting called in for an interview for teaching a playwriting class and realized that I had an erasure poem I wanted to submit and the deadline was fast approaching…
so last week was not the week.
But as Scarlett O’Hara, a heroine that I despise would say, “tomorrow is another day.”
So barring anything crazy, this week will be the week.
But back to the erasure poem, I received work yesterday that it will be included in the project (I’ll post more later.) (I also got the job teaching kids play-writing! expect a blog on that later.)
I’m super excited. This was my first attempt at an erasure poem. Erasure poems, for those who don’t know, is a form of found poetry or found art created by erasing words from an existing text in prose or verse and framing the result on the page as a poem.
The project is going to be available on Silver Birch Press.
I found this sort of work, freeing in its constrictions. The project had a specific constraints on the topic as well as the page number you could pick. It was a puzzle for the artistic mind!
It also helped with my writer’s block. 🙂 I really do suggest it for people who can’t think of anything to write or who like to pretend like me that they are visual artists as well.
I think I might take a few books and just have at it. Who knows maybe I’ll come up with
