“Computational Poetry” workshop

February 23 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Please join us for a workshop on generating poetry, led by Mindy Seu of Harvard University and Lillian-Yvonne Bertram of UMass-Boston.

Participants will learn a brief overview of generative poetry, ranging from works by Raymond Queneau of the OuLiPo to Alison Knowles of the Fluxus movement to modern-day Twitter bots. Then using Nick Montfort’s adaptation of A House of Dust, we will create poetry generators that will live on the web. The workshop will use HTML, CSS, and Javascript, but all are welcome—no coding experience necessary.

Please bring your own laptop or email Sarah Connell if that’s not possible.

Registration is required and space is limited; to RSVP, please email Sarah Connell at sa.connell[at]northeastern[dot]edu.
