Literary Citizenship: Tiny Press Practices is a course that is a hands-on exploration of contemporary, autonomous, small, and micro-press practices as they relate to a poetics of community accountability. How might we participate in creating the literary and artistic world we wish to inhabit? What is our responsibility as writers, readers and thinkers, to a larger literary-artistic culture? What kinds of communities are made possible through different kinds of cultural action and cultural work?
Each participant in the class creates a text-based object using various techniques relating to bookmaking; we make at least enough copies to exchange one with every other member of the group, and to give one copy to the library.
