Raphael Rubinstein says "appropriative writing." Michael Davidson says "palimtexts." Gregory Betts says "plunderverse." Purists say "plagiarism." This panel of the AWP will feature poets whose writing incorporates source texts as a compositional process and perhaps also with the intention of challenging the idea of textual ownership. Poets in this panel will discuss methods of appropriation in their own work and suggest theoretical issues underlying their use of source texts. Please send abstracts (300-500 words) and a brief biographical statement by email to Camille Martin: <>. Deadline: April 15, 2006. The 2007 AWP will be in Atlanta, February 28 - March 3.
