Adventures in reading: the writing of containment to the gift of the hard-won word

My latest Adventure in reading is now available to read here. Drawing on Sara Baume, Lorina Bulwer, and Marilyn Robinson via Ellah P. Wakatama, I consider how my relationship to words has changed during lockdown, and how tangible making can be both comfort and political necessity in such times as these.

The essay has been hard to write because I have more questions than answers, and the pull between word and making has been a vexed one for my practice of late. But I’m lucky to have such wonderful writers to shape, add to, guide and provoke my thinking, and as ever it’s a pleasure to share my adventures. Click here to take a look, and you can subscribe here.
