Reading & Writing Poetry:


Selling Fast

Guided by John Cage’s Themes and Variations (1982) this 12-week course has been designed for those with some experience of reading and writing poetry.

In addition to developing critical discourse, participants will explorimprovisation and indeterminacy as tactics in the making of their poetry.

Participants will also explore, by way of close reading and their own experiment, the influence of Dada and Zen Buddhism on Cage’s work and the ways in which his purpose was to find a way of writing which though coming from ideas is not about them, or is not about ideas but produces them.’
