Last week’s assignment was to take the pantuom we wrote earlier, and now cut it up, break it apart and get experimental. I love this quote from the class:
Pablo Picasso once stated, “Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.” A writer is an artist with words, crafting entire universes and histories onto the page with the stroke of a keyboard or a pen.
After I finished my Dexteresque dissection, I put the poem back Frankenstein style—a bit of this attached to a bit of that.
I dug deep into the graves in my mind for material and stitched it all together into a monstrosity I call Just In Case. Click it to read it full size.
I think you can still join this Massive Open Online Course. We are in week #5 and the deadline for submission is Sept. 5. Plenty of time!
