About This Event

Nonsense verse in English has a long history, stretching back to Anglo Saxon riddles, folk poetry, and nursery rhymes, but it's often considered a lesser genre because its primary audience is children. In this workshop, we'll have fun writing nonsense of all kinds, and explore the associated "highbrow" nonsense of Dada and Martian poetry. Our emphasis will be on play and discovery in this informal workshop: no previous writing experience is necessary! Facilitated by Erik Schuckers, Center for Creativity: The Workshop  This workshop is free and open to all members of the University of Pittsburgh community: students, faculty, and staff.
