Poetic Erasure

All Levels | We will discuss erasure as a poetic form and look at several examples of contemporary erasure works. Students will practice in-class exercises and learn process techniques to engage in their own erasure processes. Everyone will have the opportunity to share and receive feedback on their own and others’ works in progress.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.

Leigh Sugar

Leigh Sugar is a multidisciplinary artist from Michigan. She currently teaches writing at the Institute for Justice and Opportunity at John Jay College in New York City, and holds an MFA in Poetry from New York University, where she studied on fellowship. Poems appear in POETRY, jubilat, Pigeon Pages, and more.

Leigh has taught in a variety of settings to folks ages 0 through older adulthood, including undergraduate creative writing at NYU, facilitating writing workshops in state prisons through the Prison Creative Arts Project, and teaching academic and professional writing to justice-system involved individuals.

A disabled and chronically ill artist, Leigh aims to foster accessible arts spaces and invites active feedback from participants in order to make workshop as safe and supportive as possible. We are all responsible to ourselves and each other, and poetry workshops are such a sacred place to practice this system of community care.
