What role does poetry play in a world plagued with techno-babble? Bring your smartphones, laptops, and tablets for an interactive workshop exploring the ways in which the Internet and social media inform our poetic sensibilities. Led by the editors of Window Cat Press, a Boston-based online literary journal inspired by memes, we’ll examine established forms of modern text and multimedia that incorporate the Internet, such as flarf, Google poems, and hyperlink poetry, then explore ways to create our own pieces through gif set ekphrasis and other exercises. Come celebrate the ways our lives intertwine via the Internet, and bring the fun back to creative expression.
