Flarf and Conceptual Poetry
I spent an hour and a half preparing my Flarf and Conceptual Writing presentation. Assembled books, handouts, etc. Also had a hands-on part. I've used Katie Degentesh's The Anger Scale and Kenneth Goldsmith's Traffic as examples. Students read these without any prior information about these forms. Lots of great debate over "Is this real writing?"
