kinetic utopias: a writing workshop with anne waldman

we will consider the theme of utopia together and write poems as antidotes to the technologies of control and dystopia. we will reference classic utopias, and utilize methods (“experiments of attention”) of collaboration, performance, documentary poetics, divination, and montage.
please arrive at the workshop with a list of possibilities for what you would include in your utopia with special attention to endangered life forms and how you might “dream the end of war”.
