Title: Christian Bok leads Uncreative Writing workshop at Queensland Poetry Festival
Location: South Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Description: Poets in the modern milieu have already begun to question the lyrical mandate of originality in order to explore the readymade potential of “uncreative” literature—be it automatic, mannerist, aleatoric, or readymade, in its literary practice. This workshop, Griffin Poetry Prize winner Christian Bök traces how notions of both the accidental and the procedural have increasingly informed current writing by poets who find inspiration in stolen texts, random words, forced rules, boring ideas, cyborg tools.
