On the 1 – 06 we took part in a one day event with workshops related to the current exhibition about artists books held at Phoenix Gallery Brighton.
I have been doing this surgery, workshop, for a while now. Sometimes I called it:
A spanner in the words and sometimes plainly poetry surgery. I have not intention to help people to write a beautiful poem or prose. I am just interested into facilitating writing whatever form it takes. I guess I am interested into the internal mechanisms that makes us stucked when in front of a blank page but also in the mechanisms that set us free. I use some writing tools, book roulette, a hand, and brains to be picked, to create a playful environment in which people are able to play and write. These are some imgages of the day.
