ONLINE Hot Potato Poetry
Instructor: Laurie Fuhr
MEMBER PRICE: $48.75 (with member coupon AWCSM25)
NON-MEMBER PRICE: $65.00
Pass the poem before you get burned! In this online workshop, the chat and breakout room features will be used to allow fast-paced poetic collaboration between different numbers of poets using methods for creating exquisite corpses and spontaneous poems. As the class progresses, the instructor will pop into rooms at random and up the ante, throwing aleatory procedures (‘chance techniques’) and websites into the process. As you complete poems, upload your strange, weird, and wonderful collabs into a Google Doc to share from at the end of class.
This class takes place in person at the Alexandra Writers’ Centre in Calgary.
