Erasure Poems

    Below are writing links, video links and images from a April 1st 2017 (4/1/17, or 20170401) poetry performance of Janet Kuypers’ Austin poetry feature through “National Poetry Month” live at the Bahá’í Faith Center (at 2215 E M Franklin Ave, Austin, TX 78723), where she opted to write “Erasure Poems” to perform for the show (Erasure Poems are poems where portions of well-known documents or speeches are “erased” to create a new literary piece).

    Before the show started she also released copies of a chapbook of the writings she was performing in her show (in the order they were performed), and all of the pieces from this reading were also released electronically in a “Erasure Poems” chapbook, which you can download as a PDF file for free any time.

    There is also a YouTube playlist of the videos of this show, and there are also two additional web page listings for the videos from this show — one is at Scars Video (at www.artvilla.com/scars), and the other is from the main listing at artvilla.

    Below are video links and poetry writing links and images to the live performance of “Erasure Poems” at “National Poetry Month” for Expressions in Austin.
