Simmone Howell: Ways with Words: Hands on Poetry!

Session Info:

An engaging workshop that involves finding new ways for old words. Students can black out words in existing articles to produce ‘redacted poetry’. Or cut and paste, or try the surrealist game of Exquisite Corpse.

Participants will create poems and short prose by altering existing texts (beware: old and battered books may be harmed in the process). An overview of the surrealist movement and underground publishing included.
