This seminar/workshop will be devoted to collaboratively composed writing in a range of genres, including poetry, short fiction, performance, and critical essays. Multiple examples of collaborations will be provided, and some theoretical readings will be assigned. All readings are intended to further inquiry into the aesthetic and social characteristics that are special to collaboratively authored writings. Meanwhile, the principle focus of the course will involve course participants in undertaking collaborations themselves.
