CERVENA BARVA PRESS WORKSHOP, "Writing Poems From Other Places" by Irene Koronas July 17, 2015 7-8:30pm

Arts for the Armory
191 Highland Avenue
Somerville, MA

Writing Poems From Other Places
Instructor: Irene Koronas
Friday, July 17th, 2015
7:00PM -8:30PM

This workshop will explore appropriation, replication, plagiarism, and samplings, as compositional methods. We'll see how modern notions about chance, procedure, repetitions, and aesthetics of boredom dovetail with popular culture to usurp conventional notions of time, place and identity, all as expressed through poetry. We will rewrite up to 3 pages from a newspaper article. This will help the writer become aware of the act of writing and the position the body takes during the rewrite. We will then discuss the experience, write poems from the rewriting, either by repetitions found in the article, or by taking phrases directly from the writing, the inspiration found in the rewrite.

"Marjorie Perloff has coined a term, "moving information," to signify both the act of pushing language around as well as the act of being emotionally moved by that process. She posits that today's writer resembles more a programmer than a tortured genius..."
