British University Lecturer Faces Wrath of Choronzon

Joanne Bedford, who teaches creative writing at The Open University in the UK, has a simple writing technique:

• Select
• Copy
• Paste

Then you change a few words. Evidently that is the part that requires university-level instruction, since her students certainly arrive knowing the first part.

It’s one thing to plagiarize Dylan Thomas as well as some lesser-known (but alive and angry)  British writers. But read to the end and you see that she also stands accused of plagiarizing Aleister Crowley.

Which of his works? Inquiring minds want to know.

By the way, Choronzon has a Wikipedia entry. (Via University Diaries.)

  1. Somewhere, somewhere, Brion Gysin and William S. Burroughs are either having a fit of laughing over this or acting out a classic meme photo.
