Renga Writing Roundtable, is a student centered one-credit workshop modeled after Japanese renga writing groups. This writing workshop meets as a weekly writing & editing circle.
For the spring 2011 semester, we will explore the Japanese and English traditions of collaborative renga writing. Renga calls on each participant to provide imaginative readings of a previous verse, then add a new linked verse to create a new poem. Therefore each link connects to the previous verse and shifts into a new creation. And the process continues, with writers creating a new poem out of every two links until the end of the renga.
Students read and write about the renga writing tradition, and engage in renga writing in class teams and through entire class collaborations.
