North Baltimore Chapter: What is Artifact Literature?

August 27, 2020
7:00 PM

North Baltimore Chapter Zoom Meeting

What is Artifact Literature?

Prose is written in a series of paragraphs. Poems, in a series of lines, stanzas. But is that it? Not if writers have anything to say about it. In the last ten years, great works of literature have been told via lists, Power Points, tweet storms, hotel reviews, recommendation letters, emails, YouTube comments, gifs—you name it. Actually, the first novels ever written were made-up diary entries. One of the best poems published last year was a flowchart. The number of forms that writing can take is endless.

Tyler Barton and Erin Dorney of Fear No Lit will present about how great literature takes the form of everyday artifacts all around us. Specifically, they’ll present about their 2018 piece, The Hidden Museum, where they wrote fictional art labels and had them installed at the Susquehanna Museum of Art.
