Certainly (certainly) Launches with Jordi Infeld

On Sunday 21 May, 3pm–3.45pm ‘no more poetry’ editors daniel ward and Joshua Edward speak to poets Rachel Schenberg and Jordi Infeld about their new book Certainly (certainly). Inspired by the 3:15 Experiment (Mayer, Hofer, Dinsmore, Brown) the poets have written a poem at 1:53am each day for 30 days.

The panel discussion and poetry reading will focus on somatic, embodied writing rituals and exercises as valuable parameters for poetic and philosophical exploration. The reading will explore a range of different ritualized writing tasks, focusing on themes of motivation, inspiration, collaboration and purpose. Jordi Infeld commented:

The book has come out of a collaborative poetry project where Rachel and I woke nightly at 1:53am throughout October to write in our semi-wakeful state. This idea came from The 3:15 Experiment, where, for several years, a group of poets (including Bernadette Mayer, Lee Ann Brown, Jen Hofer, and Danika Dinsmore) would write every night in August at 3:15am.

We are excited to be launching the book at the NGV Art Book Fair in Melbourne this coming Sunday 21 May at 3pm. We will have a reading and panel discussion with daniel ward + Joshua Edward (editors of no more poetry) on constraint, ritual, and collaboration.
