Sub-Lit: the Contagion with Richard Kenney
This class concerns verse that spreads without professors.
Long before the internet, certain word-strings have always gone viral, colonizing minds by infectious means, mouth to ear, without need of the literary apparat and its customary gray vectors: tenured professors, annotated anthologies, editorial and critical harrumph. Well collect specimens of this subliterary sort, including jokes, riddles, curses, charms, weather-saws, and prayers, and consider how they do it. In that sense, this may devolve into a lightning taxonomy of the several live magics constituting Ars Poetica, including the mysteries of meter and sonic echo.
Curse us if we dont keep it light! Join us in the exploration of an Ars Poetica as we collect specimens we can use for our own journey. This workshop is open to writers of all abilities. Please bring writing materials.
