Nature & Sentience

June 10th, 2017

Chris McCabe and I have collaborated on a series of ten emergent poems using found texts from Virginia Woolf's The Waves (1931). We began writing these visual texts to perform on the North x North West Poetry Tour in January 2017 and have continued the works to complete the sequence.

The following example has been published in Nature and Sentience, the fourth in the 2017 Contemporary Poetry Series from Corbel Stone Press. Nature and Sentience gathers together the work of fifteen poets exploring other-than-human sentience in, amongst other things, the motion of waves, the dreams of animals, the gaze of deer, the motion of mayfly rising, the sensoria of sharks, 'the pulse of the elements', and 'the immutable unity that moves all things'.

Nature and Sentience features new writing from the following poets:
Oscar Balloveras (USA)
Jack Davis (CAN)
