TOPIC: Writing Oulipo and Surrealist poetry and short prose — a brief history and methods. That constraints are often used in liberating the poet is a fairly well known paradox — which we can explore, discuss, and try out. Participants may bring in some French and other examples, just for fun or for more serious purposes. You may also enjoy playing with the following web sites prior to the Forum: A Book of Surrealist Games (Shambala Publications); OULIPO (Drunken Boat)

Bring 17 or more copies (2 page limit) of a poem you want critiqued.

*$5 – $10 donation appreciated.

This project has been partially supported by grants from Poets & Writers and the Illinois Arts Council.
