Abstract (300 words maximum)

In this project, the audience and I will create a collaborative poem. This process would start with a prompt or question that I will present to the participants. The prompt will serve as the topic for the song, and the audience would take seven minutes to write a response to the topic. Then, we will share our responses, and some (willing) audience members would offer one phrase or sentence from their own written response. Next, we would compile these phrases into a list and discuss common themes, analogies, and ideas. After, we will revise the poem as a group, and read the final piece. Thus, by the end of this workshop, the audience and I will have created a collaborative poem.
