Among the many things we will do this semester, we will write poetry. These are websites that generate poems for you using algorithms and scripts and things. The products will not be good, but that’s where you come in. Use the generated poems to spur you into action: write a good poem based on what you end up with. Perhaps write a trio of related poems or a conversation between poems where one answers another. Or just use bits and pieces from one or ten of these robot poems to write something cool. Play. Generate. Beat the bots.
