Participants are invited to grapple with language as matter and material, and in sustained artistic lineages. How does language fizz, slip, crack, and sparkle with material presence? Beyond traditional genres of creative writing, how do language forms vex the ways we have taken authorship and audience as understood positions? Our explorations will open toward ways of knowing and unknowing media, extending beyond individualist notions of the “self” to undo, camouflage, or de-personalize, and then re-energize, the processes of making art and meaning in the public arena. Each participant leaves the final workshop having created, restaged, reworked, “corrected,” or annotated a significant work, either their own or that of another artist. Feel free to bring your own writing work, either printed or digital.
