Collaborative Play: Prose Poetry as Creative Research

WEBB, J. (Speaker), HETHERINGTON, P. (Speaker), Paul MUNDEN (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation

Description

This panel reflects on an international project in which writers based in the UK, Australia, and Singapore wrote and shared prose poems in the spirit of experimental play. An email exchange, initiated by three poets, eventually involved twenty-four poets from nine universities, generating over 2,500 poems in two years. The discoveries, in terms of personal and collaborative practice, the value of creative play, and the capabilities of the form itself, have been significant, with a wide range of outputs.
