At the core of SFPC is a self-reflexive prompt: What is poetic computation? Each convening of SFPC community members has a new opportunity to respond to this prompt with definition, interpretation, critique, embodied practice. This spring, SFPC returns to the core, inviting you to facilitate new possibilities for this question.

Poetic Computation is a prompt with a deep past, many presences, and infinitely possible futures. Join our incredible group of teachers to play in these timelines, practice writing in poetry, prose, and code, and help redefine (always again) what poetic computation can be.
