Letting Your Avant Garde Down

Tutor: Caleb Parkin

5 weekly sessions on Tuesdays, 7pm – 9pm, starting 23 January.

A invitation to innovate, explore and take risks with your writing

We are the avant-garde! This course is an invitation to innovate, explore and take risks with your writing. Through five fortnightly sessions, you’ll explore avant-garde techniques harvested from the Surrealists, Situationists, Oulipo and more – from found and black-out poems, to automatic and ‘uncreative writing’. These exercises can not only encourage us to bypass our usual or habitual thought processes, but can also help access new aesthetics, forms, ideas and personal topics for poetry. You’ll be given fun, stimulating ‘ways in’ to the avant-garde, encouraged to work up pieces and – who knows? – perhaps we’ll start our very own movement.
