POST EVERYTHING POETICS
A Workshop with Ron Silliman

Saturday 5 October 1-5pm
Location: Concordia University
Library Building, Room 646
1400 de Maisonneuve Blvd. West
Montreal, Quebec
H3G 1M8

This workshop is absolutely limited to 12 students.

This is not a “writing workshop” per se, but rather a look at some recent developments in writing & how they relate to (are driven by) the world we share, with an eye to looking at how we can use our own poetry to encourage, reflect, & engage change that is more than mere fashion. Topics of discussion will include Modernism and the poetics of capitalism, world-system analysis, gender capital, writing beyond capitalism, and poetry as a post-capital (or even post-everything) venture. Participants will come to the workshop having read a variety of material and will be prepared to participate in a discussion of this material and share their own work in relation to the readings.
