Robert Vaughan–Stop Making Sense (June 19-21)
Stop Making Sense: Writing the Absurd, Meaningless, Whimsical, and Silly.
What happens when you burn down the house? Stand on your head atop a rock in the East River? Marry a piece of furniture? When your best friend Dennis only tells you lies? Did I see you make out with a willow tree? Is it raining men? Halleluia! In this weekend workshop, we will look at examples of writers, past and present, taking on fresh prose, hallucinatory poems, fleet of feet phrases, musical outsiders, and whatnot. A space for freedom of play, whimsy, irrational, ridiculous innovations! Come ye, heathens and angels alike! Let the gibberish begin.
