What if every communication, every encounter, were intimate? Imagine that. You have imagined being a new collectivist. Why not consider yourself one.
   --from New Collectivists: Poetics of Intent

In this course we will be testing our understanding of what "creative writing" is, both by working on our own creative manuscripts and by taking stock of alternative writing communities, including those that have emerged from the fall course and those that are developing elsewhere at Evergreen and beyond. Students will develop each other’s creative manuscripts by performing a series of collaborative textual experiments that subvert the standard workshop model, hopefully yielding results both radical and intimate. Beyond their internal worth as "radical play," these experiments will build towards a week of performances, readings, publications, and happenings at the end of winter quarter, as well as in the spring. Note: The fall quarter Experiments in Text course is not a prerequisite for winter or spring. All are welcome.
