The Cut Up Commandments
1. Use one item for the project (i.e., an essay, ad, poem). Limit your lexicon.
2. Employ some kind of chance process in your process.
3. Keep cut up to one page.
4. Document your process.
5. Remember that it doesn't have to make sense.
Next week in class, after we discuss the cut ups, we will be having a found poetry workshop. Please bring your scissors, glue stick, and an article to cut up. I will also bring stuff for cutting.
