WRITE NOW: Prescriptions for the Anthropocene: A Master Class in Poetry with Anne Waldman, Long Island University, Brooklyn, NY

“This is an extraordinary time for writers as we face an expanding universe and our planet struggles with the destructive carbon footprint of the human. We will consider the rhizome of our interconnectedness, and find generative ways to write through chaos and negativity.This is a poetry/hybrid workshop for all curious writers. We will immerse ourselves in “experiments of attention” engaging memory, dream, documentary poetics, agit prop, erasure, cut-up, performance, and collaboration. We will cross genres and genders of possibility. And the linguistic possibility of shifting identity and focus.Inspiration and reference will be given to modernist, and post-mod contemporary writers associated with the Outrider tradition. We will discuss archive, artistic-community, the 100 year project and what it means to be contemporary with one’s time. Writing, discussion, critique.”
