On Friday, January 13th at 2PM, poet Nkosi Nkululeko will lead a craft talk and workshop on a procedural analog form of his own reinvention—the square poem. Drawing on a lineage of multi-directional and procedural poetry, the square poem demonstrates the expansiveness that constraint can lend and offers perspective into what generative and procedural forms can look like outside of digital spaces. Though, we imagine this form to have applications in and implications for computational creativity too! You can see a quick introduction to the form from Nkosi himself at the link here.


This event is part of If, Then: Technology and Poetics, a collaborative, public, and interdisciplinary virtual working group and workshop series promoting inclusivity and skills-building in creative computation. Check out our website here and get in touch with Carly Schnitzler ( or Lillian-Yvonne Bertram ( with any questions or suggestions. 


Supported by Carolina Seminars and the Digital Literacy and Communications Lab at UNC.


If, Then: Technology and Poetics is a working group and workshop series that meets monthly over Zoom. In this space, we bring together writers, coders, and scholars investigating the relationships between humans and machines and the works of art, literature, and visual knowledge they produce together. Our group is interdisciplinary and interinstitutional, consisting of faculty, staff, and graduate students from departments ranging from English to Architecture to Computer Science, alongside independent scholars, poets, and creative practitioners and technologists.
