Writing the Posthuman: A Poetry Workshop
Dates: July 2nd- August 1st
Description: In this 4-week workshop, we will interrogate the term posthuman, and write poems in response to theoretical conceptions of the term as well as poems that may be considered posthuman. Each week, you will write one poem, comment on at least 3 other poems by your peers, and receive feedback from me. I will comment on every poem.
