part of the week was spent investigating ‘oulipian’ strategies at the AWP conference, held for the first time in nyc. Great blogging about the event exists already,
The panel “Newlipo: Proceduralism and Chance-Poetics in the 21st Century” session rocked my world, and in particular, the work of Patricia Carlin and Joan Retallack was amazing; Retallack nearly levitated the entire audience (this is difficult to describe) with her talk– it emerged onto itself as a structural masterpiece! Jena Osman used an example of ours truly –Noah et al’s _Newsreader_ in the talk, as well. Yay!
