Impossible Language: the Digital and the Divinatory

This is a class about discovering what you can learn from randomness. The instructors will guide you through activities, both material and digitally-facilitated, that aim to disrupt your creative process through a variety of techniques. Throughout the class, you will have the opportunity to both generate new work and re-envision poetry in process.

Let instructors Eva Bertoglio and Natalie Jane Edson guide you through a series of analog and digitally-assisted exercises designed to reinvigorate your creative process and connect you to your subconscious mind through pattern recognition and ritual.
