This course invites you to enter into the unknown alchemical terrain of working with other poets and artists to create new work. Students will experience the speed and shift in dynamics of leaving their singular artistic identity at the door and entering into the alchemy of joint creativity. Exercises will involve collaborating towards a live event, using blogs and other live web platforms and collaborating with a dead poet. This course will make use of a blog where ongoing work can be shared with the outside world. This course is open for those who are creative in other forms, such as music, art or graphic design and who would like the opportunity to work closely with poets in creating new work.
