Here’s an advertisement I just came across this morning. It reminds me of other advertisements, mostly in front of grocery stores. But a festival can advertise itself any way it wants to, right? And who wouldn’t want to have a choice in workshops? Maybe if one could find a way to go to all four workshops listed here (below), one might come away with poems that rant against injustice with word-play and fragmentation and form leading to revelation and surprise!
I especially like the second workshop in the list. I imagine a prospective workshop attendant sitting at the breakfast table, perhaps over coffee, seeing the advertisement and thinking, why yes, I do want to rail and rant against injustice!
Surely this is a sign we’re in the end-times?
