As part of the 'Sixth Form English Conference' at the ICA we ran a workshop
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!"
