ICA Workshop

As part of the 'Sixth Form English Conference' at the ICA we ran a workshop titled "Cut It Up with Poetry Fanzine". The pupils were divided into groups and each given two texts to Cut-Up and compose into a poem which they then read. The response was great and the results were subversive and funny. The texts included; lyrics from Britney Spears and The Beatles, instructions from a juicer manual, a political speech, celebrity gossip column and daily horoscopes.

some quotes from participants:

"Great, Interesting, Enlightening"

"Make it longer: more poems!"

If you like what you see here, and would be interested in us developing a poetry fanzine workshop at your school, office, or conference, please get in touch with us at words@poetryfanzine.org
