Is the 8.5” x 11” page a restrictive border in a world increasingly surrounded by militarized borders? How do our imaginations and creations shift when a poem is drafted across a wall, or atop a newspaper, or on a drug store receipt, or the inside of a matchbook? In this generative poetry workshop, we will examine how the constraints and limitations of the page impact form and content generation within a poem to create our own borderless poem. Poets will have the opportunity to experiment with form, scale, collage, and visual poetics to generate work that foregrounds their own narrative and celebrates the expression of free movement as form a resistance. All supplies will be provided, free of charge.
