Collaboration Playvacation: a noncredit community course at the UA Poetry Center
More info here 

Summer is a time for vacationing from our selves. In this four-session class (plus two out-of-class gatherings by pairs/groups), we will generate art like we’ve never generated before—in part because the “we” is no longer us. We will vacation from our notions of single-author-created texts; from “writer’s block”; from ego/I conundrums; from the limitations (and, sure) well-worn benefits of having an allegedly singular identity (that is: who we are or aren’t, have or haven’t been). As a group we will delight in the joy that we can find in work created not by a sole author but instead by the weird spaces that exist in the hyphens/bridges/gaps between us. As we know, it is neither humble nor appropriate to delight in the I! So let’s delight in the we. This is a beach party; this is an island vacation. Bring a bunch of blank pages and your most relaxed and open pen.

March 30-April 2, 2016
“UA Poetry Center Presents: Spectacular Poetics & the Poetry of Spectacle.”
A panel discussion presented at AWP (Association of Writers and Writing Programs) 2016 Conference
with Terrence Hayes, Kimiko Hahn, Khadijah Queen, and Adrian Matejka
Los Angeles, CA

If poetry engages with spectacle, why, and in what ways? In this panel, we address increasingly ubiquitous confluences of poetics and spectacle. Is the poet’s task to call attention to bright screens, to celebrity culture, to the many public-facing pleasures and pains of the 21st century? Do poets use spectacle (their understanding of audience, attention, flashing lights) to their advantage? When it comes to spectacle, do we want today’s poets to decry it? reveal it? hold it up? celebrate it?
