Language can live a very different sort of life when it exists with, or in, a visual-arts realm. A few examples from such leading practitioners as Tom Phillips, Bianca Stone, and John Ashbery will be presented to jump-start your imagination in this direction. Then, augmented by your words and other graphic materials, we will make visual/verbal collage pieces out of old book pages. Bring drafts of your own writing to mine for text-art.
Nance Van Winckel’s newest books are Ever Yrs., a novel in the form of a scrapbook and Pacific Walkers, her sixth collection of poems, a finalist for the 2014 Washington State Book Awards (U. of Washington Press, 2013). She is on the MFA faculty of Vermont College of Fine Arts and a Professor Emerita in Eastern Washington University. Her new “altered” visual-poetry book will be out in 2016 with Pleiades Press.
