We hold no particular aesthetic allegiance, but we believe that poetry is a process, a way of thinking in language, engaging with language, attending to language. Poems are events. Poems are for everyone.

A videorecording of the event here.
Log file of the zoom chat here.

You can download the framapad as a .pdf – saved on July 17 21H Paris time.

What does it mean to be together apart? How can we create and share ideas from an (un)distance?
In this experimental panel we will explore the topic “(un)distance” as a way to b(e/r)ing us together and to share ideas over various (di)stances and (di)scourses. We will center around  long-distance writing practices, and will self-reflexively discuss how effective on-line community discussion works.

You could have participated watching the video conference while at the same time joining in a collaborative reariting on a framapad.
If you click on the clock icon topright in the framapad you can see a cinamatographic image of the reawriting – a historique dynamique.

The framapad is a site for your thoughts and longer discussions, for questioning/commenting/digressing/feeding and disturbing the (un)distance elo panel before, during and after its effectuation.

#PEAE published in ebr

It touches on my inability, unwillingness to categorize my work and where that leads.

Published: Abrahams, Annie. “#PEAE Participative Ethology in Artificial Environments”, Electronic Book Review, May 3, 2020.

Pondering on my relation to electronic literature / e-lit for the eloCork 2019 conference, where is was invited, I was surprised to discover how strong that was. My interest for text and translation has pervaded my all over, what? … networked practice …
I am happy that the article that resulted from the venture has been published in the Electronic book Review. (thanks eo-Cork and ebr) My only regret is that I didn’t mention my ongoing e-stranger – What language does to you or not. – project.

The Machinic Author

Our article The machinic author has been published in the Journal of Creative Writing Studies in a special Issue: Creative Making As Creative Writing.

… an artists’ statement that situates the work in feminist materiality (Barad) Kathi Berens.

The author is this intra-action itself. The author is not “dead” as such. He has just changed his nature. The machinic author reveals herself as queer.

Abrahams, Annie and Guez, Emmanuel (2019) ““The machinic author” Artist’s Statement: The Reading Club”, Journal of Creative Writing Studies: Vol. 4: Iss.1, Article 8. ISSN: 2474-2937.
Available at: https://scholarworks.rit.edu/jcws/vol4/iss1/8

“We take the Reading Club as an example for how nowadays reading and writing is entangled with machines and software. A real-time language game with a humorously competitive character becomes, through a public act of constructing and deconstructing sense, a creative apparatus. This literary “machine” does not write itself, but makes authors write text in a conversational space full of meanings and emotions. It is a kind of human text generator that challenges the idea of creation and where the authors are, at best, co-creators. Appearing in the 1960s, the “death of the author,” who is not really one, is actually the awareness of the emergence of the machinic author.”
