Whether Anne Carson responds to Virginia Woolf or Samuel Beckett, or Caroline Bergvall composes with Dante, poets enter each other’s texts directly and indirectly. But how do we enter into another’s text and still retain an original voice? Where are the boundaries? In this workshop we will encounter multiple responses to Gertrude Stein, Virginia Woolf, and Emily Dickinson, and tackle a variety of writing exercises designed to create new pathways to one's own, as well as other's, work. Participants may bring a text they wish to work with or may discover a new author to work with through assigned readings.
