Visual Poetics: Black-Out, Cut-Up, Collage, Careen

Borrowing from visual art, performance art, and collaborative techniques, this generative poetry class offers innovative prompts to spark new writing and fun ways to expand your poetry toolbox. Finding inspiration in diverse sources, including erasures by Mary Ruefle and Jen Bervin, installations by Jane Wong and Jenny Holzer, and visual forms by Apollinaire and Tyehimba Jess, this workshop culminates in at least three new drafts and a final guerilla-style approach to sharing our work. All levels of experience welcome.
