SOM: Blackout Poetry
Please email DukeCreate@duke.edu if you have any issues registering for this workshop.
About the Workshop
In this class, we’ll practice deconstructing a text to create new meaning with the pieces. We’ll have books you can use, or you can bring something of your own to work with. Need to pursue catharsis through rewording old class materials, maybe?
About the Instructor
Shelbi Polk is a writer and artist who has been embroidering since her childhood in Texas. She studied literature and actually gets to use that knowledge, both in her freelance writing career and in her fiber arts practice, where she creates works that draw on her love of ancient archetypes. Shelbi moved to North Carolina for a fellowship at the News & Observer in 2018, and she’s been haunting Durham coffee shops ever since.
