Join RHINO for our Fourth Sunday Poetry Workshop, Led by Dan Godston Dan Godston teaches and lives in Chicago. His writings have appeared in Chase Park, After Hours, BlazeVOX, Versal, Beard of Bees, Drunken Boat, 580 Split, Kyoto Journal, The Smoking Poet, Horse Less Review, Moria, Apparatus Magazine, EOAGH, Requited Journal, Sentinel Poetry, and other print publications and online journals. His poem “Mask to Skin to Blood to Heart to Bone and Back” was nominated by the editors of 580 Split for the Pushcart Prize. He also composes and performs music, and he directs the Borderbend Arts Collective. TOPIC: Writing Oulipo and Surrealist poetry and short prose — a brief history and methods. That constraints are often used in liberating the poet is a fairly well known paradox — which we can explore, discuss, and try out. Participants may bring in some French and other examples, just for fun or for more serious purposes. Bring 17 or more copies (2 page limit) of a poem you want critiqued.
