Exquisite Corpse

Type:  

Generative Method

 
Description: 

A method for obtaining group poetry. One person writes some words and folds the paper to hide all or part of it and passes it to the next person. That person then adds some words folds the paper and passes it on. This started out as a party game, but has been used by surrealists to create poetry, or delve into the group psyche.
