My early fall class is an intensive workshop style course intended to challenge students to create a sense of experimentation and transformation with their existing written works. The course integrates attendance and participation at the "&Now" Conference as essential to the coursework and we will additionally study the works of the keynote speakers in advance of the conference. An exhibition of the student works will be included in the "&Now" program. Below is a description of the course.

BISIA 330: Visualizing and Performing Poetry
In what ways can we imagine language to perform for us beyond the page? How can we literally and figuratively pull words and pages apart to create something new where language leaps from our books and bodies? This is an advance Interdisciplinary Arts & Creative Writing class where students will create works rooted in writing but intended to be experienced as a performance or visual work of art (ie installation, film, textile/fiber art, book art and etc.) Students who enroll in this intensive workshop-based art class will come to the course with some existing writings (prose, poetry, song, etc). We will then workshop and discuss your writings, compositions and intentions. From there, you will work to further examine and transform your writings into a new performative or visual experimentation. Students will then have a chance to participate and present their final works at the “&Now” Festival of Innovative Writing hosted this year at UWBothell from Sept 19 – 21, 2019; Conference Theme: “Points of Convergence.” Our class integrates conference attendance as part of the required coursework.
