A one-day workshop generating work inspired by uncertainty.
A day of poetry inspired by randomness and uncertainty. Listening to half-tuned radios, following strangers, translating dog barks, etc. Working backwards from nonsense (nb. results could still be very stupid). We will try out some tested approaches (borrowed from Conceptual Writing, Chaos Magick, Dada) as well as devising some of our own.
Saturday 20 January. One-day workshop, 10.30am – 4.30pm.
More information about how all our face-to-face courses work can be found on the Face-to-Face courses page.
