    SurrealEstate
    Participant

    
     

    Just thought I'd introduce myself and
    say “hello.”

    My name is Adam Engel, author of
    TOPIARY: A NOVEL, and I HOPE MY CORPSE GIVES YOU THE PLAGUE: MY LIFE
    IN THE BUSH ERA OF GHOSTS.

    I live in this really cool
    artist/musician/writer/activist community called Surreal Estate. I
    find the communal living situation and variety of “non-traditional”
    people very inspiring.

    They're letting me teach
    a course there, starting November 8th, called “Writing
    Creative,” which I based on the famous “Imaginative
    Writing” course the poet Kenneth Koch taught at Columbia for 40
    years. I'm following his advice and keeping the course down to a
    maximum of ten students, so people have to send submissions if they
    want to participate.

    I'm really exited. I hope this course
    flies.  It would be good to carry on Koch, Ashbery, O'Hara and the rest of the New York School's legacy. Check it out:
