The next Writers Forum Workshop – New Series will be on Saturday 10th June at The Barley Mow pub, 127 Curtain Road, London EC2A 3BX (nearest stations: Old Street and Shoreditch High Street). 4pm start, finishing for 6pm. Free admission. Please join us to share your new writing. This month, in addition to the usual workshop, we are pleased to host an extended reading by Johan de Wit, followed by discussion of his work.
From the website of the publisher Reality Street:
Johan de Wit is a Dutch-born writer in English whose project is to create an absolute poetry of unalloyed language, acting as a rigorous detoxifier to the language centres of the brain. He is a truly avant-garde figure, a genuine explorer of language continents others don’t even know about. He has been published since the 1980s, with a large number of books and pamphlets to his name.
Examples of Johan’s work online:
- Extract from Gero Nimo at the Reality Street website (PDF).
- Poetry and statements at Intercapillary Space.
- 3 poems at Canary Woof.
- A Response to Robert Sheppard’s ‘The Necessity of Poetics’ at Pores.
- Johan interviewed by Jim Goar at The Conversant.
