WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION "writing: recycling and recyclages"
A generative, open-genre workshop offered by Jennifer K Dick and Lisa Pasold
In connection with Dive-In’s focus on raising
funds for environmental causes, this workshop will reconsider the pages of
language we often automatically trash in our lives, and the objects, debris and
linguistic fields they are often connected to. In short, over our two hours
together you will be prompted to “recycle” the scraps of advertising,
packaging, labels and other tidbits of language that arrive at your home into a
variety of texts. Collage and writing, epistolary forms and performance will be
among the topics covered. Come with pen, paper and a pile of about-to-get-binned
junk mail, packaging labels, etc. In any language!
Suggestion: to get into the groove, check out “Dump (‘Dance This Mess Around’) by Laura Mullen in The Volta’s special issue on trash: https://thevolta.org/feature-lmullen-p1.html, pick up a copy of AR Ammons Garbage or any one of the books in the series of drafts by Rachel Blau DuPlessis, or see Anna Swanson’s interactive hypertext recycling series “garbage poems” at: https://garbagepoems.com/index.php
I will be offering, with Lisa Pasold, this FREE workshop on for DIVE IN. Free. Free, but PLEASE DONATE TO THEIR CAUSE: see gofundme for a clean water project in INDIA and NEPAL.
ALL whole week for DIVE in events are happening and we are thrilled to be part of it!
