6:45 «ONE LAW FOR THE LION AND OX IS OPPRESSION»: WAYS OF THINKING ABOUT CONSTRAINT WORKSHOP with Chris Jennings

For the purposes of this workshop, we'll consider constraints that contribute to the process but are ultimately catalysts that don't show in the final product, and those that remain a clear and contributing part of the final product. Participants are asked to bring, in addition to a poem or poems, up to three ideas for a constraint that a poet might use in crafting a poem. We'll then apply some of the ideas to participants poems and discuss their possible value to both process and product.

CHRIS JENNINGS is the author of Occupations (Nightwood Editions, 2012)
