Blackout Poem/Erasure

April 6, Blackout Poetry / Erasure. Making poems out of other writing, art to more art. This exercise is close to my heart. There are so many variations of erasure, and one of my favorites is making the page into art and poetry. Sarah J. Slot’s Hotel Almighty is an incredible example of erasure turned to collage. It’s one of my favorite books to flip through when I need inspiration. Here’s a blackout poem/erasure that I started using the text The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson.
