Join us for a pair of workshops in October to explore the world of LitMemes, found poetry, and textual reframing in the name of literature.
Workshop 1: We survey a history of the literary avant garde, look at the creative repurposing of textual material, and investigate the nature of memes.
Workshop 2: You produce your own!
Important to Note:
- Participants are requested to bring their own laptop
- There will be homework for the 2nd session
