FLARF 2021 with Lenni Sanders
July 22, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Flarf poetry – which uses found text from internet sources and plays with intentional ugliness and daftness – was on the up 20 years ago. The internet was a very different place. What does it feel like to write flarf now? The raw materials are different. Are we saying different things?
In this workshop we will play around with text, incorporating the aesthetic, language and moods of the internet, creating new writing that may feel jarring, silly, repetitive, knowing, sly, exuberant, or all of the above. We will draw inspiration from unexpected places, and make ourselves laugh.
