Naropa Summer Writing Program, Week 1, June 2 – 7, Boulder, CO

Documentary Poetics Interface Between Writing & Research

Documentary Poetics is not owned or claimed by any particular poetry “school.” It looks to the past and the future, not being a product of conceptual poet-modern consciousness. One might do research on the latest computer or find gems in dusty libraries and used bookstores; there are annals in the strange offices and sub-basements and attics of the mind. Investigation, scholarship, sousveillance, dream, nightmare, endangered species/cultures/languages that need reclamation. Family histories, lineage trees, the possibilities are exciting and myriad. What needs our attention and a writer’s hand as we hunker down with our various and sundry projects?
