Week Two: Forgetting Ourselves

Homework is this one reading from Adam Phillips’ book, Side Effects:

Adam Phillips Not Making it Up


And next weekend we will be doing our first workshop!

Prompt is: write a poem using, as a starting, ending or middle point, a dream.

You have all week to wait for a dream–even if the barest fragment–to use–

but the idea is not to SAY what’s a dream and what isn’t in the poem. Just use your unconscious material to your own pleasure, however you wish.

And you really can use the dream as a launching point, not the whole poem by any means.

Also, Time?


Upload your poems in the “student uploads” section, there you will see a folder for week 2.
