Poets and artists have long turned to the modern cartoon strip as a source for innovation. In this workshop, students work collaboratively and create comics and poems based on examples from writers and artists associated with the New York School, the Four Horsemen and Surrealism.

Paolo Javier is the current Queens Poet Laureate and the author of the time at the end of this writing, among other poetry books. He has taught at the University of Miami and co-edits the press 2nd Ave Poetry.
