Join us for a Blackout Poetry Writing Workshop - no writing necessary! The workshop offers a space to generate poetry through the process of creative destruction. Attendees will be invited to bring a pre-existing passage and selectively remove words to create a new body of text. All levels welcome.

Lana C. Marilyn is a Brooklyn native literary artist of Afro-Caribbean descent. Her practice includes zinemaking, collage, audio, and performance to present storytelling as a sensual, social, and immersive experience. For more of her work visit or on Twitter (@cinniie) & Instagram (@cinnxessa).


Note: This program is offered through the African American Heritage Center (AAHC), housed at the Macon Library. AAHC programs are open to anyone, and everyone, interested in celebrating, exploring, and discussing the African Diaspora. If you have questions please contact Sheena at [email protected] 

This AAHC virtual program will take place via Zoom. For optimal participation, you will need either a computer with audio and webcam or a telephone. A link and number to access the meeting will be sent to registrants one hour before the meeting, so please keep an eye out for the email (and check your spam folder if you don't see it!).
