  1. Reblogged this on David J. Bauman and commented:
    Word Fountain cover artist and fellow editor Ainslee Golomb and I had a lot of fun leading this workshop. It’s a super way to introduce the playful possibilities of language in poetry. If also gives the word artist practice at playing with visual art, and the visual artist a comfortable entrance into language play. We had all skill levels present and it seemed like everyone was eager to do it again.

Got something to say?
