In this class, we’ll explore ways to mine books. We’ll use erasure, sonic chains, and alphabetizing strategies to isolate sensory-rich details and vivid phrases to use in our creative work. We’ll also discuss how to use imitation and paraphrase to “steal” interesting language. By delving deeply into books, we’ll rediscover that language is both muse and material. Words trigger more words. Please bring a page of your own work to class.
