Visual Poetry Laboratory

Create new collaborative and individual writing with text and visual work, plus a mini-zine celebrating our collective efforts by weekend’s end. We’ll look at work by artists such as Julie Doucet, Phillip Guston, Nedko Solakov, Raymond Pettibon, and William Steig for inspiration, and we’ll experiment in the lab with collaged words, construction paper, constellations, and Surrealist-style translations. Open to writers and artists at all levels of experience.
