About Erasing Frankenstein

Erasing Frankenstein is a public humanities outreach activity that will showcase the creative exchange that took place between federally incarcerated women and members of the prison-education think tank Walls to Bridges Collective (W2BC) at the Grand Valley Institution for Women (Kitchener, ON) and graduate and undergraduate students from the University of New Brunswick. Working collaboratively by long-distance mail, they made the first-ever poetic adaptation of Frankenstein, turning it into a long erasure poem, made by “erasing” each page of the novel, that is by blotting out unwanted words to create a poem with the remaining ones.
