Blackout Poetry - Grab & Go Kit

Halton Hills Public Library - Georgetown Branch

9 Church Street

Halton Hills, ON

In-person Poetry & spoken word Self-guided Writing & literature

Create a unique and meaningful poem by trying Blackout Poetry! This fun style of creating poetry takes a piece of printed material and redacts parts to only reveal the words used in the poem. Be inspired by your own imagination, or use this year’s Culture Days theme, “Re:Imagine,” as a writing prompt. To get started: pick up instructions and some discarded book pages by visiting the Main Service Desk at either branch of the Halton Hills Public Library. We invite anyone interested in sharing their completed works of Blackout Poetry to return their poems to the Library to be included in a Blackout Poetry display! This event is part of our One Book, One Halton Hills program series. In 2021, our community is reading Gutter Child by Jael Richardson. COVID-19 safety protocols are in place, including physical distancing and masks. Screening is required to enter the library. Visit our website to learn more.

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.

This event is free.
