    Description

    Between the inception of the Dada movement in the 1920s and the Beat poets in the 1960s, poetry transformed. Poems no longer had to be about meter, rhyming, and line breaks. All of a sudden, poems could be just about anything.  In this one-off workshop, we will explore experimental and alternative poetry methods including blackout poetry, cut-up poetry and Oulipian constraints. These poetry methods are accessible to all and you do not need to feel confident in your writing skills to participate. 

     

    Josiah Morgan is a multimedia artist, writer, and educator residing in Ōtautahi. He is the author of two poetry collections, one novella, and a hybrid text about The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. He has taught writing to a wide range of individuals from diverse communities, and his work has been published as close to home as Christchurch and as far from home as Hungary. You can find his work in The Spinoff, Out Here, eel magazine, Mayhem Literary Journal and Poetry New Zealand Yearbook. BYO notebook, pen and your lunch, tea and coffee provided.
