Remix Poetry Workshop/CAA

I’ll be giving a workshop soon…

Tues, April 8th, 2014, 7-9pm
Canadian Author Association, Ottawa

Remixing your poetic material workshop at Canadian Authors Association

Remix culture is presented as characteristic of our age but poetry’s toolbox has long been taking pieces from here and there and synthesizing elements to new effect. Partly hands on, partly theory, this 90-minute workshop would explore examples and techniques of using disparate sources and collaborating to make new whole. Sampling, recutting, and using the material of distinct poems to make distinctly fresh ones. Whether you are a fiction-writer by nature or poet, there’s more to be gained by looking at tools for livening you out of risk of rut.

The group meets at the Main Branch of the Public Library, 120 Metcalfe Street (corner of Metcalfe and Laurier). Free to members; non-members, $10; students up to age 17, $5
