Killing it Softly: Found Poetry with Claöd

2:00 PM - 2:45 PM

Join in a workshop where laziness, stealing and failure are part of the process as you re-write poetry and prose gleaned from a variety of everyday sources. Toss a chopped line or two in hat, swap sentences with your pals, or “white out” text from a used book, magazine or your own botched compositions.

Re-contextualize advertising into philosophical musings, create mock sentimental propaganda, or compose a theoretical, silly, serious, political, meaningful, existential, sentimental, sarcastic, stream of consciousness manifesto as you wish!

“Bad” poetry friendly zone. No prior experience necessary. Text may result in content some may find offensive (such as adult themes).

Materials supplied, but please bring anything you would like to work with such as disgusting doctor’s office brochures, letters from ex-lovers, instructions for D.I.Y. pancake mixes, etcetera.
