Python for Literary Creation

OLA is the TLA for the Parisian organisation Outils Libres Alternatifs (Alternative Free Tools). They will host a workshop with An Mertens on using Python code for literary creation.

A line of code is like an action of a recipe. One prepares an ingredient, applies the aciton and the ingredient will be transformed. Oulipo, the Parisian collective around Raymond Queneau explored the idea of recipes or constraints for creating potential literatures since the 60s. Their work is a great inspiration for writing using code.

By using concrete esamples, participants of the workshop will learn to generate new transformed texts based on existing ones. You will work individually and in group towards the goal of creating a collective publication at the end of the workshop.
Open to beginners and advanced Python writers.
