fun words, good people and a little Bernadette Mayer
for photo cred look - here!
i had the pleasure of spending last thursday afternoon with poet Stephen Ross Smith and a bunch of writers. always a good way to spend some time, this workshop gave me a much needed poetic boost as i launch into post-lit-degree-pre-fine-arts-degree life!
things i took away from the afternoon that i want to share with you:
the word TORQUE is pretty amazing…. i may have just found my new favourite word!
the word TREACLE is equally awesome and i take my hat off to anyone who has recently had to use it in a writing contest submission.
also, Stephen Ross Smith (three named people have a distinct advantage of sounding far more posh than the rest of us) directed us to this great site – 82 WRITING EXPERIMENTS BY BERNADETTE MAYER.
i love learning new things. here are 82 new things i didn’t know before i logged on to this site this afternoon.
so check it out. there will be inspiration, oh yes, there will be inspiration!
a rainy afternoon is the perfect time to start the new masterpiece!
