Poetry, Politics, and Embodiment 2021 Online | Literary Arts Fall Thematic

Overview

If, as is understood by the faculty, much of the anxiety about contemporary poetry can be described as an identity crisis — if it is a struggle between the old and the new cast as one having to do with voice, theme, and tradition — then who can inherit the future of poetry is cut along gendered and racialized lines.

We begin from the supposition that poetry is a radical refutation of the world-as-it-is, and as such, is and has been the province of minoritized peoples.

We will think together about poetry as a vehicle of liberation and protest; about subjectivity and embodiment as poetry’s context; and about how race, gender, class, sexuality, and ability pressurize aesthetic categories.

What does the program offer?

This residency offers space to think, talk, and write about poetry and about the "I" and "we" of poems; about confronting inheritance and tradition with the concomitant aims of justice and revolution for the marginalized. Emphasis will be placed on witness and testimony - with considerations for safety for speakers of difficult truths — as well as politics and cultural criticism as key modalities of today’s poetic impulse. Through faculty talks, online discussions, and one-on-one consultations, residents will concentrate on the writing of poems and the theoretical, embodied, and experiential foundations which make writing possible in the first place.

This 7-day online residency provides thematic teaching from faculty members, Q&A sessions and one-on-one workshopping. 

Instructors will discuss ideas, experiences, and obstacles that participants may be encountering with their writing across genre.

Program Dates: October 16 - October 22, 2021

Application fee: $25

Program Fee: $251.65 +GST

Program Fee with Financial Aid: $0.00+GST*

*Financial Aid of 100% of the program fee is available for this program.

About Us: Wild Roof Journal is an online art & literary publication that will feature work from a wide range of creative people—painters, drawers, photographers, digital artists, writers, poets, and anyone else who is passionate about the creative process and self-expression.

Our primary goal is to provide a welcoming environment for artists to share their work. The people behind the scenes of Wild Roof are fellow artists—we know the amount of time and energy it takes to produce a finished piece, and the challenges of getting it out into the world for people to see. We want to offer opportunities for artists to connect with other artists as well as to promote their work to a larger audience.

We would like to keep our themes broad enough to offer a lot of room for interpretation. Our emphasis is on presenting the most engaging and thoughtful artwork possible, not on adhering to strict rules for subject matter or style. As a guideline for what we find interesting, here are a few points to consider:

Our aesthetic preferences are varied, but we tend to favor unique perspectives and experimentation. More traditional forms are appreciated as well; however, with wildness comes some level of the unpredictable and the weird… If you feel like you do things a bit differently than “the norm” (whatever that means to you), then you’re probably in the right place!

We tend to like work that is inquisitive and curious, at times mysterious, at times playful. So, if you find questions more interesting than answers, you’re on the right track for us!

Although we have categories for our submissions, we are absolutely interested in hybrid forms or work that defies easy categorization. If this describes your work, we encourage you to submit; if necessary, you may pick the category that’s most fitting and add a note to explain your work in more detail.

_______________________________________________________

Note for all submissions:

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please withdraw pieces from consideration if they are accepted elsewhere. If you have a previously published piece that you feel deserves our attention (and you have retained the rights), please acknowledge the previous publication.

If your work is accepted, you agree to give Wild Roof Journal online publishing and archival rights; following publication, all rights revert back to the author/artist. We ask that you credit Wild Roof Journal if the work is published elsewhere in the future.
