Panel: Acts of Radical Poetic Collaboration
Friday, February 4, 10:30am - 11:45am
Delaware Suite, Marriott Wardman Park Hotel


Sidebrow’s Jason Snyder will be discussing Sidebrow and the origins of the Sidebrow 01 Anthology as part of a panel on radical acts of poetic collaboration.

F123. Unite!: Acts of Radical Poetic Collaboration. (Arielle Greenberg, Rachel Zucker, Dana Teen Lomax, Rodrigo Toscano, Matthew Cooperman, Jason Snyder) How does collaborative poetic work, which destabilizes the single-author voice and resists total control, lend itself to radical themes and aesthetics? In these projects, process, style, and content interrogate notions of authorship and authority, resulting in subversive perspectives on politics and culture. Collage, children participating, live performance, and interdisciplinary media are just some of the techniques used to create work that is as community-minded as it is provocative.

The panel will feature readings and discussions of five innovative approaches to producing collaborative texts, along with an audience Q&A.
