Multigenre Workshop: Collaborative Texts

This course examines the poetics of collaborative acts: the third mind experiment. Writers embark on explorations with other writers, artists, musicians, dancers, or filmmakers. Texts that challenge the single author and cross artistic genres are explored in order to expand narrative, poetic lyric, meaning, and structure. We interrogate the third space between collaborators and question notions of authority in authorship. The confluence between two or more writers sparks new developments in the creative process.
