About this Event

During National Poetry Month the Piper Center is excited to offer free workshops and writing spaces for our community.

Sometimes being able to take things away can help you understand what you have. Transforming the texts that surround you can give you renewed perspective on how to understand your poetry and generate more. This workshop will focus on starting and sustaining your poetry practice through exercises using black out poetry.

This workshop will be facilitated by Allie Mahai.

Allie Mahai is a senior studying Poetry at Arizona State University. She has been published in Normal Noise Magazine, State Press Magazine, and edited for ASU comedy for two years. Her work is mainly focused on meaning-making and personal reflection.
