City Lit: Writing black out poetry with Sarah Westcott
Sat 25 May 2024 to Sat 25 May 2024
Sometimes a poem is shaped by stripping words away. This fun day workshop explores the emerging form of black out poetry. Learn how to find hidden poems in texts such as newspaper articles, advertisements and letters.

The emerging form of black out poetry is enabling poets to find hidden poems in their every day life and share them with the world. This course teaches the form of black out poetry, the different approaches a poet can take to this form and places it in the wider context of found poetry. Students will have the opportunity to engage with numerous writing activities and receive feedback on their work.

Sarah Westcott is an award-winning poet and journalist who has been writing professionally for over 20 years. She holds an MA in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway and has published three books of poetry.
