MONTREAL, PQ
WORKSHOP
10 am - 4 pm.
I'll be teaching an all-day poetry workshop called Wreckage & Recycling for the Quebec Writers Federation. The workshop will concentrate on several forms, ancient and modern, that scavenge old texts in order to construct new poems from the fragments of the past. These forms include centos, erasures, glosas, text collages, and more. We will investigate the history of these practices, and examine their contemporary resurgence. Time will also be devoted to writing and work-shopping new poems using these techniques. To register, or for more information, please visit the QWF website.
