Circle for the Potential of Literature with Lynn Crawford
Sunday, June 4 and Sunday, June 11, 3-5pm
Admission: Free with registration, education@mocadetroit.org

This clever writing workshop presents participants with a series of playful timed exercises designed to challenge the intellect and expand creative thought. Developed by Harry Mathews, the workshop employs various constrained writing techniques favored by the Oulipo, a French literary salon established in the 1960s made up of mathematicians, artists, writers, engineers, and poets. Mathews is best known as an experimental fiction writer and a central figure in the New York School of Poetry. He contributed to the Paris Review for over fifty years and was the first American chosen for membership in the Oulipo.

Fiction writer and art critic Lynn Crawford is a founding board member of the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), a 2010 Kresge Literary Arts Fellow and a 2016 Rauschenberg Writing Fellow. Her books include Solow, Blow, Fortification Resort, a series of art-related sestinas, Simply Separate People, and Simply Separate People, Two. Her latest novel (2016) is Shankus & Kitto: A Saga. Her work appears in various anthologies—Oulipo Compendium, Fetish, Brooklyn Rail, Fence—and journals—Art in America, Infinite Mile, Detroit Research, Hyperallergic, Tema Celeste, McSweeney’s, Lilies and Cannonballs, Parkett, Bookforum, Metro Times.
