Calgary, Alberta, Canada, April 19 (Friday) 2013. Spoken Word Festival, The Banff Cenre, Festival Hall, 1215 10th Ave S. Word Makes World: Writing Generative Verse: This is a poetry writing workshop that aims for the tender intersection of word-fertility with critical inquiry. We will write some exercises, but the stress will be on the particular attention that language requires to become incarnate. Helpful to this would be reading "The Posthuman Dada Guide," and "The Poetry Lesson," two short books. "The Posthuman Dada Guide" surveys the history of poetry's increasing urgency in a wacked world, and "The Poetry Lesson" is an amusing (and deadly serious) distillation of my years of teaching mysteries for a quarter of a century.
