Impromptu Series: Reykjavík Writing Workshop

November 4, 2009

I’ve had the pleasure of facilitating two writing workshops in two weeks for Reykjavík folks. The first workshop had twelve enthusiastic participants, and we worked on free writing, erasure poetry, and cut-ups. The second workshop had thirty writers, and we covered free writing again, plus homolinguistic and homophonic translations, and a collaborative manifesto exercise with performance. Local artist Tomas Ponzi sketched participants during our translation activities; this sketch shows Kristín Anna Kamban, Jón Bjarki Magnússon, and me.
