The organizing principle of this writing workshop is original writing’s relationship to source. In this age of remix, sample, cover, and mashup, we will consider praxis. In this era of translation and mistranslation, adaptation and remake, we will discover poesis. In this workshop atmosphere, we will conquer theory. As we read our own new creative work, we will ask how process and procedure affect meaning, discuss ways to begin defining a writing practice, and seek means to achieving art.
