Literary Adaptation: Writing Through Rewriting with Paul Legault

October 13, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

$325

In this class, each writer will select a classic text to adapt and transform over the course of the six weeks, while engaging with poems based on precursor texts, and the precursors that provoked them. How can writing be a way of reading? How old is the ‘remix’? For inspiration, we’ll discuss Shakespeare rewrites by Jen Bervin, Harryette Mullen, and June Jordan, as well as Jack Spicer’s “Homage to Creeley,” Rod Smith’s “Homage to Homage to Creeley,” and Joshua Ware’s “Homage to Homage to Homage to Creeley,” alongside many other literary sequels.”
