Some basics about the art of writing:




We (writers, poets, editors, publishers, academics, arts administrators, readers) are currently overwhelmed by the “professional” approach to the art of writing.

“Professional” writing means that the writer censors his or her ideas to fit into marketable boxes.

There’s more to being human than can be expressed in the currently fashionable modes of writing emitted by publishers.

Imagination has huge (unlimited?) range.

Please remove the walls of the marketplace, strip off your professional suit, & accept the galactic range of human creativity.

Let’s return to the roots: creativity, imagination & fun.

We’re humans, not capital generating machines.
